Have your say


The UN and other partners have launched a new Global Initiative to Advance Children’s Right to a Healthy Environment, from 2019-2021. Children and youth from around the world are being invited to share their views and concerns on environmental issues, and these will be shared widely with decision-makers at country, regional and global level. Based on the inputs from children and young people, a Global Declaration on Children’s Right to a Healthy Environment will be developed and handed over to world leaders in 2021.

Educate yourself

Adults keep saying: ‘We owe it to the young people to give them hope.’

But I don’t want your hope.
I don’t want you to be hopeful.
I want you to panic.
I want you to feel the fear I feel every day.
And then I want you to act.

-Greta Thunberg, Climate Activist
