Bio Logika and the LIM City Challenge for Children: Virginie Lelarge (global)

BIO LOGIKA is an awareness education tool to help children learn while having fun. BIO LOGIKA was recognized in 2012 as an international public utility initiative by Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Charlene.
LIM City Challenge for Children
The mission of the LIM City Challenge for Children is to raise children’s awareness about sustainable mobility in smart cities, showing them that some very pleasant means of transports can be used each day to go to school or when they do their leasure activities. The LIM City Challenge for Children also follows the goals of showing the families, and especially the mothers, that they have a key role to play in their children’s education, sharing with them, that the future will need to be respectful of the environment therefore limiting CO2 emissions.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (United Kingdom)
The mission “Great social challenges of our time” helps the families of the national society to better understand the importance of children’s education in the early years and the needs of parents in their own children’s education, based on more time given, more love and more accomplishments. The goal is also to address parental loneliness which causes dramatic lacks for children’s lives.
Fondation Princess Charlene of Monaco (Monaco)
The mission of Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is to save lives by putting an end to drowning. Its missions are to raise public awareness about the dangers of water, teach children preventive measures and teach them to swim. When a drowning is non-fatal, often the victim is left with severe aftereffects, in particular neurological. A number of “Learn to Swim” and “Water Safety” programmes have been implemented around the world in order to fight against this scourge. The Foundation’s actions are also based on the values of sport such as discipline, self-respect and respect for others, determination and team spirit.
Be Best: First Lady Melania Trump (United States)
The mission of BE BEST is to focus on some of the major issues facing children today, with the goal of encouraging children to BE BEST in their individual paths, while also teaching them the importance of social, emotional, and physical health. BE BEST will concentrate on three main pillars: well-being, online safety, and opioid abuse. BE BEST will champion the many successful well-being programs that provide children with the tools and skills required for emotional, social, and physical health. The campaign will also promote established organizations, programs, and people who are helping children overcome some of the issues they face growing up in the modern world.
National initiatives can empower the world
As all initiatives, they start nationally with our own children and people. Though, their impact can be worldwide as each child and family of the world are concerned about:
- the yearly age and the well-being of children’s and families
- the environmental education
- learning to swim and water safety
- moving safely and smartly in the cities
- well-being, online safety and the risks of drugs
