Kidzania Manila Prepares Kids for a Greener World
There are four new programs at Kidzania Manila that teach kids how to be stewards of Mother Nature. It’s tagged as “Kids for a Greener World“.
Ren and I were invited to discover and explore these four new areas a few days ago. I love that Kidzania always have something new to offer to their little patrons.
The program, which is supported by partners: Century Tuna, Shell Philippines and H&M, aims to teach kids about water, air and land environment issues such as garbage, overfishing, and car emissions.
Green Spot #1: Shell Transportation Efficiency Center
This is the first area that you’ll see when you enter Kidzania. There’s a game wherein the parent and child needs to make the ball pass by 4 areas of the obstacles to reach the finish line. There is a time limit so you need to be fast.
This area taught us how to effectively plan routes that will efficiently use fuel and reduce air pollution through cleaner car emissions. It’s fun to do this game with your kid (nakaka tense din haha). You’ll earn 10 KidZos in this area.
Green Spot #2: H&M Conscious Upcycling Workshop
You’ll see this area at the main square. Here you’ll need to pay 15 KidZos because you’ll get a nice bracelet afterwards. The kids will learn how ordinary objects can be recycled to make something awesome.
Ren learned to braid using cloth strips. It was hard for him so I helped him with it. This is the finished product 🙂
Green Spot #3: Century Tuna Fish Market
Ren enjoyed this area so much. Here, he learned to identify 3 kinds of fishes and how to support sustainable seafood. They were asked to group the fishes together and after that they delivered the fish orders to various stores.
Green Spot #4: Vertical Garden
This area is not that new, but they added the vertical garden so that kids will learn that you can make your own garden even though you have a small area. Ren reported about this in school last school year, so he was familiar in what they were doing.

Join Vita’s Challenges!
As the RightZkeeper entrusted with the Right to Care, Vita also encourages the kids to take on different challenges that would show how much they care for the environment. These includes “Fish to Fork!” and “Fish Market” where the budding environment advocates must take a picture of themselves eating sustainable seafood, or their parents choosing sustainable seafood inside the supermarket, respectively.
To further create awareness on air and land environment issues, the kids can also take on the “Good Car-ma” challenge where they must take a picture of themselves carpooling, and the “Upcycle-Rama” task where misters and misses must have their parents or guardians take photos of them “upcycling” fabrics at home. Kids who complete Vita’s challenges can get exciting KidZania Manila premium items.
Let your kids spend the best summer ever at KidZania Manila by discovering how they can take care of the environment towards helping build a better world. The play city is open every day!
