June 17th is the World Day to Combat Desertification, and this year, the Day’s slogan is “Enhancing soils anywhere enhances life everywhere. ”

Check out this short video on UNICEF’s You Tube Channel to see how young people around the world are combating desertification and enriching their local environments through planting trees.

You can also check out UNICEF Canada’s resource guide on Climate Change, Children and Youth: Local Connections to Global Issues for activities to explore related issues in more detail with your classroom.
