Why is this happening?
Around 1 billion children, roughly 1 in 2 children on the planet, live in countries at ‘extreme risk’ from the impacts of climate change and 1 in 2 children in the world are living in poverty.
Make no mistake the climate crisis is a child rights crisis.
Our world is at a crossroads. Children are leading the way. World leaders must listen to their calls, tackle the root causes of these crises and put children first.
How your donation can help:
