Featured Project: “Children Make the Difference to the Natural World”
Children’s Development Program to Restore Humanities’ Love for the Natural World
In the video Gaby and Gemma speak about a unique children’s development program to restore humanities love for the natural world.
Humanity is devastating the natural world. What I care about is being lost — animals, forests, clean water and air.
If we keep doing this, we will eventually make our planet barren for future generations.
Adults, after you are gone, I and other children will not have the world we deserve.
Please wake up! Nurture rather than spoil our beautiful planet!
Your donation will allow me to work with other children in the program, to find our voices, so we are heard.
None of us wakes up and decides to act to extinguish all life.
These unintended social consequences are because we have lost our love for the natural world.
With children as caring, passionate, eloquent advocates for the nurture of local habitats, and new sustainable systems for local communities, we will build differently in villages, towns and cities, and alter destiny.
Our Children’s Development Program restores humanities’ innate love.
Dream Foundation Project – “Children make the difference to the natural world”
Our Children’s development program is part of the Dream of Chris Rourke who is a 67 year old authentic Australian character.

Children with their love of the natural world can lead us to think of simple things that we are too blind to see and to imagine, and the wonders that we are too cynical to believe. Chris’s idea is to empower children to wake us up, to lobby their parents, lead advocacy and form children’s organisations aimed at nurturing, (not spoiling) the natural world, and reversing the impacts we are having on climate, air, water, land and habitats and species everywhere.
Our program runs as a unique training and development for children to experience the love of nature in natural habitats, and learn the science, natural and human history of the habitat. Then children then work with performing artists to become passionate eloquent advocates for the nurture, growth and sustainability of the natural world.
This is a self sustaining learning structure, as children pass on their learning, development and training to their children. Through the advocacy of children, embedding our love for the natural world as a guide, we will design, create value, and impact societies systems.
