On No Litter Day in Zimbabwe, children raised their voices so everyone in the town heard them. "Because if we don’t look after our environment, life will be difficult and short for all children on the planet. And that’s not something that we, the No Litter Generation, are willing to accept!” says WCP Child Rights Ambassador Hassan, 12.
Hassan and his ambassador friend Kimberley take environmental issues very seriously. "As WCP Child Rights Ambassadors, we have been given a lot of training in children’s rights. I’ve learned that a clean environment is counted as one of the rights of the child. I didn’t know that before. As WCP ambassadors, we are now fighting for children’s right to a clean environment and health. It’s really important! Us members of the No Litter Generation do not accept previous generations littering and failing to look after our environment. It’s time for change! We hope the fact that we demonstrated in front of everyone in the town on No Litter Day and demanded that adults change their behaviour will be a good start.”
Hassan and Kimberly, better safe than sorry!
Kimberley and Hassan both got involved and organised No Litter Day, and collected litter.
... and this plastic hat!
