      Sure, children are the future generation that can change things, they have a lot of influence on their parents and their behaviour. Also I like children open minds, no restrictions about it is impossible, I cannot do it, no bias, free ideas…children curiosity that adults forgot…

      Absolutely, though sometimes that difference takes a while to fully embed so it may not feel like you’re immediately making a difference

      I think so. Children inspire us (adults) to be and do better. Children and also be and do better than the people who came before- like making it normal to recycle for example.

      Absolutely. Children a great wealth of wisdom. The world cannot be without them. They are so amazing and so inquisitive asking lots of questions where you may not have all the answers. It is amazing how you can have children coming from the same family but with different ambitions, stereotypes, abilities. Their naturing and growing shapes them into different leadership roles as some are scientists, teachers, leaders in schools, communities, carryout powerful debates that can change some constitutions.
