Please watch the Testimony, which shows kids from different schools responding to his presentation at Ipswich Youth Sustainability Summit.

Aaron Wood, founder of 'Kids Teaching Kids:

“We are so honored to have Arlian as a Kids Teaching Kids Youth Ambassador. Arlian is an incredibly inspirational example of young people making a big difference by becoming environmental leaders and having their voices heard.  He is also an exceptionally mature and gifted public speaker and was a perfect addition as a keynote speaker at our 2020 Kids Teaching Kids Conference. Our students loved hearing from someone their own age and left energized, motivated, and poised to tackle plastic pollution and other environmental initiatives in their own communities.”


Quotes from Principals:

- Surry Hills Public School, Sydney: Your movie Plastic Alarm and the Skype talk with you afterward really sparked the students' enthusiasm and creativity. It was amazing to see how engaged they were and how they took action straight away. The day after several of them went to clean up beaches and try to get more kids involved. Others started asking their parents why they use single-use plastics and coffee cups! Yet others are looking at the school Canteen to see what can be done to reduce waste. The movie and talk with you built momentum at school, empowering the students to be a part of the solution to create a sustainable school and community.

- Tim Bleakley, St. Finbarr's Public School, Byron Bay: The Future Generations needs inspirational people like Arlian, I want him to visit as many schools and to spread his message to inspire as many people as possible.

Janeen Silcock, Ballina Coast High School, Ballina: Arlian was fantastic. Anyone who wants to change the world, needs to look to our young people, they are the ones who are going to inherit the earth, and we want them to be in control.

- Margo Carwardine, Principal of St.Peter Chanel Primary School, Brisbane: The students and staff at our school were inspired by the film. As a community, we will be following up with a school-based Initiative that works toward a plastic-free environment. Thank you for sharing your passion with us.

- St. Oliver Plunketts in Victoria: You have really inspired all of us to try and reduce the amount of plastic we use and also to convince our families and other members of our community to do the same.

- Silvia Atzori EDUCATIONAL LEADER Beacon Hill OOSH" We have booked this for our program for Term 1 supporting the Plastic Free Boy with this amazing project.

It’s a great opportunity to empower the students to be a part of the solution and create a sustainable school and community. "

- Meg Sutcliffe, Director of International School Rheintal, Switzerland:

I have had a lot of positive feedback about the film and the discussion with Arlian. We showed the film to the students and then had Arlian on Skype answer questions and tell them about his project - we recommend this to every school.
