On 1 April, all the children and young people participating in the World’s Children’s Prize program will join in the Round the Globe Run for a Better World. On this day, you will present your ideas on how to achieve the Global Goals where you live and in your country. You will also either walk or run together on this day, maybe 100 turns around the globe, for a better world!
Start 1 April with a ceremony for the Global Goals, at which you tell the adult world how you want things to be and what you all need to do, together. Then all pupils will form a long human chain, fingertip to fingertip. It’d be great if you could display your posters too. Remember that you are doing this alongside over a million pupils at the same time!
The human chain is the beginning of you taking your message around the world. You’ll extend your chain by walking or running three kilometres. The circumference of the Earth is 40,076 kilometres. We need just over 1.3 million children to reach round the globe one hundred times with your message for a better world!
On 1 April, children around the world will form human chains and stand up for change!
The Round the Globe Run for a Better World is mostly about Goal 5 (for gender equality and equal rights for girls), Goal 10 (reduced inequalities) and Goal 16 (justice and peaceful societies).
