There are many things we can do to face climate change and move towards sustainable development, but there is one that we cannot stop doing: This is to stir in children and young people the ability to value life and generate wellbeing for themselves, others and nature. Inclusion and participation of children and young people is essential because during this stage of the human development we form our values and attitudes for life and nature.
ANIA is a non-profit association founded in Peru in 1995 which promotes initiatives that inspire, constructs healthy spaces, guides and gives recognition to children and young people so they can become “agents of change for sustainable development”. Considering as agents of change people who with their vision, example and spirit transcend the established, achieving changes in favor of their environment and inspire others to live purposely co-creating a united and fair world.
