Our Goal for Ollie's World
Our goal is to make Ollie's World a child-friendly, comprehensive
resource centre - presenting information on all sorts of issues
relating to sustainability principles. Characters and activities
from the 'Ollie' CD ROM Programs are incorporated into a fun and
stimulating website. Children can extend their knowledge of sustainability
and its related issues, in a fun and entertaining way.
Examples, activities and competitions
The Ollie's World website maximises the power of the Internet
by showcasing examples of sustainable practices, developed in homes,
schools and businesses from around the world. It hosts a range
activities and competitions in which students are asked to:
- Take action in their local areas, then
- Record and present their results in their own web pages.
Ollie's web building software
To create their web sites, students or schools can use Ollie's
web page authoring software, available on the 'Ollie' CD ROM - or
from this website.
Publication of competition winners
The web sites created by competition winners will be published
as part of 'Ollie's World', in the Gallery section. These documented
projects will act as examples of best practice in a variety of areas,
and will be a source of inspiration for teachers and other students
around the world.
