Rocco Antonio Da Silva is 9 years old. He loves penguins and want to be a scientist when he grow up.
But he is also a remarkable young boy who with the help of his mom and a few other people, has created The Future Kids.
What is The Future Kids?
Inspired by his chess teacher who was creating an App, Rocco wondered if he could create a website to help kids and adults look after the environment and learn to recycle.
Rocco approached his mom with some questions …
“Mom, I have an idea”
An idea and a couple of ‘what if’s.’What if a website could be developed to help save the environment?What if we were able to educate kids (and adults) on the importance of taking responsibility to care for the environment?What if we were able to influence people to become more proactive in protecting and preserving the environment?

And so the idea for the website was born.
Why The Future kids ?
To Rocco the name The Future Kids means being responsible for our future and taking action to make sure we have a clean and safe environment.
As Rocco says “ As it is our future, I believe it is up to us to look after it and help make the world a better, cleaner place.”
What is The Aim of The Future Kids?
The focus of The Future Kids is the awareness of everyone’s responsibility to …
- Keep our ‘immediate’ areas clean
- Learn about and implement recycling/upcycling
- Take ownership of our spaces
- Keep our spaces safe for the future
