Young people are interested in sustainability and innovation. Some can conjure a smile from unlikely sources.

Thanks to two Californian primary school teachers and their students, a new hotline has been providing English- and Spanish-speaking callers with a source of joy since February.

Anyone feeling angry, frustrated or nervous can call to receive words of encouragement from kindergarten kids, or simply listen to their cries of delight.

Despite the challenges of the last two years, the students involved have remained positive.

Knowing that others haven’t been quite so lucky, however, has made them eager to help. 700 calls an hour highlights how worthwhile the service is.

This app, meanwhile, could help adults experiencing mood disturbances.
