Round the Globe Run for a better world

On 1 April, children and young people joined in the Round the Globe Run for a Better World. Every part of the WCP program, from studying children’s rights to learning about the Child Rights Heroes, and the Global Goals, has helped everybody to prepare. On April 1, children presented their ideas on how the world can reach the Global Goals before they walked/ran 3 kilometers. Together more than 1,1 million children collected 84,9 laps around the globe!
