17 Days of Activities for Young Changemakers from Concern Worldwide, Horyou and Makematic
This world is the one thing we all have in common! By working together, we can achieve great things for the future of humanity. Making the world a better place for everyone is something we need to work on every single day, and it starts with you and us to inspire those around us.
To put this idea into practice, Horyou, Concern Worldwide and Makematic have decided to set up the #17DaysToLearn challenge for young changemakers, in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals!
Your child can be a part of this global partnership by participating in the #17DaysToLearn challenge
Each day a new challenge will be set, supported by engaging animations about the sustainable development goals. The ideal age for these challenges is 8 – 16 years old, but really the challenges can be adapted to suit any age. The whole family can join in!
Together, they can show the world that every expression of optimism, no matter how big or small, has a great positive impact. Each one of us can inspire and educate others about the SDGs.
The #17DaysToLearn challenge will start Monday 20th April at 9am (GMT)!
