Inspire the kids to do their part!

At the age of 11, Haaziq Kazi delivered his first TED Talk at TED-Ed Weekend and unveiled his prototype invention: a ship named Ervis that cleans plastic from the ocean surface. The homemade prototype he created in his bathtub has evolved into the Ervis Foundation, a coalition of young people mobilising their peers to clean our oceans. The work of Hazziq inspires all kids to do their part in conserving marine life. Click here to get inspired.
