Climate Action project

Climate Action Project

Join Us About

100,000 students - 100 countries - 1 mission

To be launched in October 2019 for the third consecutive year.

Imagine a world in which youngsters across 6 continents connect virtually and solve one of the world's most pressing challenges: Climate Change. In October students aged 6-22 will collaborate on climate change topics over the course of four exciting weeks: they will study causes and effects, will try to solve issues and take action. Their and societies' mindsets will be changed.
This project is supported by HH Dalai Lama, UN Foundation, Dr. Jane Goodall and world leaders. During the past years it was featured by National Geographic, BBC and 40 more national media.

This year, as part of the project, we will do a global tree planting. Will you join PlantED?
