No Litter Generation

Children's rights are harmed when the Earth and nature is harmed by climate change, pollution, littering and more. But you and other children and young people around the world can make a difference. Through being a No Litter Generation, you can stand up for every child’s right to a clean and healthy environment, and fight climate change.

It is everybody’s responsibility to make sure that children everywhere can grow up in a clean and healthy environment. Countries must cooperate to solve the problem of and fight climate change. By changing lifestyles, recycling and not littering, we can all contribute to the fulfillment of the Global Goals for sustainable development.
