>> Water Challenge badge
Developed in collaboration with United Nations agencies, civil society and other organizations, the United Nations challenge badges are intended to raise awareness, educate and motivate young people to change their behaviour and be active agents of change in their local communities. The challenge badge series can be used by teachers in school classes and by youth leaders, and especially Guide or scout groups. The water challenge badge is designed to help educate children and young people about the crucial role water plays for life on our planet.
