Students and young people discuss the importance of education in their lives

Children’s voices are at the heart of our work. Through schools, youth groups and campaigns, we want to get young people across the world taking action on issues that affect them.

There are a range of campaign activities that focus on taking action with which schools can be involved, like Plan’s Because I am a Girl campaign which already engages thousands of young people across the world.

  • Promotes learning, dialogue and action on climate change through linking 11 to 19-year-olds.
  • An annual, global photography project for young people.
  • Your school can contribute to our work and learn about the issues faced by children in other countries
  • Explore and download our free resources, including videos, reports, and lesson plans
