About Connect the Change

#ConnectTheChange focused on highlighting inspiring young changemakers and making a difference for our planet by fighting plastic pollution, for people by growing understanding of ourselves and each other, and for other animals, particularly our pollinator friends and keystone species! By taking action for people, other animals, and the environment we share, young Roots & Shoots changemakers are showing that being bold, kind, and good for all really can change the world.

Connect the Change ran from Earth Day 2021 (April 22) through June 20, 2021 with dedicated weekly actions focused on either people, other animals, or the planet. You can get ready and get started today!Connect the Change Action Campaign 4
