Kids stand up to make a better world!

There was a time when many people had lost faith.
But then the kids of the world stood up.
They said, "We can't wait anymore!
We can make this a better world!"

If there were a place where kids could think and act independently from adults, the world would be better.
The kids came together and envisioned a real world made perfect, a world that was "the place" where kids played the main role.

Rights are Defined

Kids established a set of rights that would be there to guide them in achieving their goals, like points on a compass.

The rights defined by kids are:
The right "TO BE", the right "TO KNOW", the right "TO CARE", the right "TO SHARE", the right "TO CREATE" and the right "TO PLAY".

Under these rights, kids promised to make a better world.

And this is how KidZania - the land for the kids and by the kids - was born.
The right "TO BE"

The power to be self-determining, unique and free in harmony among mankind.

The right "TO KNOW"

The capacity to be curious and experimental when educating oneself.

The right "TO CARE"

The responsibility to be supportive and protective of the environment around oneself.

The right "TO PLAY"

The ability to be playful, participatory, and fulfilled in life.

The right "TO SHARE"

The benefit to be generous and thoughtful to oneself and to others.

The right "TO CREATE"

The faculty to be innovational, to dream up new things, and discover original ideas.

The Nation is Named: KidZania

The etymology of the name KidZania was created by combining the word "kid", which is short for the German word "kinder", with the Latin suffix "ania", meaning "land of", and adding the letter "Z" to infuse the two meanings with a fun, zany quality. KidZania has the perfect meaning: Land of Cool Kids

The orange color represents the problems of the world created by adults, while the red color represents the spirit and conviction of kids to change those issues. The capital letter "K" in white appearing in the middle of the KidZania flag represents the hope and purity of spirit brought by kids.

National Seal

Since its use in the Declaration of Independence, the National Seal has been used in many important KidZania documents.

If you look carefully at the design, you will see that the 6 rights of kids are represented as a compass. The national seal is a very important symbol that expresses the sovereignty and ideals of KidZania.

Independence Fountain

Independence Fountain was constructed to celebrate freedom from the adult world. A replica of the Declaration of Independence can be found at the center of the fountain. Independence Fountain is in every KidZania around the world as a source of pride and inspiration to the founding nation.

KidZ CongreZZ

In order for KidZania to continuously evolve and develop, "KidZ CongreZZ" was established.

In KidZ CongreZZ, actions are taken in order to make the city of KidZania even better. When kids have problems in the city, the members of KidZ CongreZZ survey the location, talk to other kids, and make recommendations to improve the services and operation of KidZania.

Each year, a new group of KidZ CongreZZ members are selected to participate in all meetings and discussions.
