When we invest in one another, other animals, and the planet we share, the positive impact always comes #BacktoUs all.
In the face of the pandemic, division, misinformation, inequity, individualism, and fear, Roots & Shoots aims to help us all get Back to Us. Through this campaign, we hope to share ways to focus on respect, compassion, sustainability, and collective action.
This year’s theme for UN International Day of Peace is “Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world.” The Back to Us campaign emphasizes the Roots & Shoots model which aims to empower young people to create change by growing connection and tackling issues that matter in your communities. While many individuals face the difficulties of another pandemic back to school season, this campaign focuses instead on the opportunities to connect and create change virtually on issues spanning climate justice, sustainability, and social equity. Together, with each of us making a difference, we can get Back to Us.
This campaign highlights virtual learning resources like our Family Toolkit to create amazing community projects, 1-Click Actions, Projects-in-a-Box, ways to start or join a group of changemakers, along with virtual events like our Roots & Shoots 30th Anniversary Awards, activities and so much more. Join us to unlock ways to get “Back to Us” and make the world a better place for all.
