Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world [125 words]
I am a primary school teacher. 7 years I have been teaching ecology using my textbooks. At the parents' meeting a parent of one of my students said to me, "My son is reproached us that we do not turn off the water and light." It was a simple example of different views of children and adults. I thought it would be good to combine the learning of adults and children, and make it a school-based. Sometimes, adult education may be held with the help of children, and it gave a positive. Exchange of views took place and at home.
