What difference will you make?

In light of the climate emergency and the considerably hostile planet that will be inherited by children, your contribution can give over 16 million children and young people in the UK, the opportunity to equip themselves with the knowledge, skills and will to adapt and evolve to more sustainable solutions. Through our various UN SDGs programmes, we have seen that at least 85% of the UK civil society is not aware of the UN SDGs, let alone act on those! This can give you an idea of the need for educating everyone including children about the UN SDGs, its significance and the importance of inspiring them to act on the Global goals. This program is aimed to complement the UK DfE's efforts in educating the next generation of climate-conscious citizens in partnership with educational institutions in the UK.
