Green Footprints

Kids on the move for climate action

Since 2002, the Green Footprints campaign has been helping children across Europe learn about the influences of their daily actions on the climate and encouraging them to become role models for both their parents and climate politicians. During at least a one week period, children in participating classes collect so-called ‘green footprints’ for every sustainable trip completed via public transport, bike or foot as well as for other environmentally-friendly habits such as sustainable nutrition.
These footprints are presented to the participants and politicians at the UNFCCC’s annual Climate Conferences.
