An after-school enrichment program dedicated to cultivating young minds could be the key to unlocking their potential. Our goal is to empower the next generation with knowledge and skills in environmental sustainability. This program not only nurtures future eco-leaders but also enables them to make a lasting impact on our planet’s well-being. Welcome to the next generation of climate change makers!

“We expect more than words on paper and promises. We expect action.” These are the words 16-year-old Getrude Clements spoke as she took the stage and the United Nations General Assembly last year and called on world leaders to take urgent action on climate change.
Exactly one year later, Getrude is joined by thousands of children from all over the world, all demanding the same thing. From the shores of Lake Chad, to flood damaged areas in Pakistan, to a school in Fiji, and the streets of Delhi – children everywhere are flipping bottles as a symbol to show they want action to FLIP climate change.
That’s why UNICEF launched #FlipClimateChange on World Water Day, calling on the people around the world to show they want to see action on climate change. The response was overwhelming, with people from so many different places sharing this symbolic gesture for change. Today, on Earth Day, we’re taking this message to the streets, and showing a video in Time Square, New York, to show that people want to see action.
You can continue the challenge to flip climate change, by speaking up and demanding action.
