UPDATE 11 September: We're looking for more mappers to bring child & youth voices to the Climate Summit. To apply submit this form.

Do you walk by a pile of garbage every day on the street?

Do you breathe the polluted air of your city?

If you believe that we should put an end to the deterioration of our planet, make your voice heard.

Help us create a global map on the challenges and positive changes that impact our environment.

On 23 September 2014, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host the Climate Change Summit bringing together leaders and experts from around the world to discuss the climate crisis.

To help bring the voices of young people to this debate, we need you to tell us what environmental issues your community faces - and the positive steps that are being taken to counteract this.

We will be doing this through a global digital mapping. (similar to this one)

During a period of 2 weeks (late August - early September), selected ‘mappers’ will share with the world specific environmental challenges and actions in their communities by uploading pictures and geo-location reports to a special UNICEF global digital map focusing on climate change and the environment.

If you are between 18 and 25 years old, have access to a computer and the Internet, and have an interest in environmental issues, you can apply to participate in this digital mapping activity by filling out this form.
