A clean planet for all: U-Reporter Scouts led climate actions in Morocco

All children and young people have the right to live on a clean planet, and the U-Reporters in Morocco want to make this a reality. Inspired by protecting and respecting the rights of children and youth, 600 U-Reporter Scouts from different regions of Moroccan answered the call from the National Federation of Moroccan Scouting and joined the “Clean Beaches Season” initiative, launched by the Mohammed VI Foundation for Environmental Protection and chaired by Princess Lalla Hasnaa in 6 cities: Casablanca, Tangier, Saidia, Agadir, Eja Dida, and Aglou.

The initiative, held from June to September 2022, launched an activation called #BeachesWithoutPlastics to fight plastic pollution on the beaches. The operation aimed to engage young people and increase their awareness of the issue through field actions and messages on digital channels.

For 10 days and in each of the sixth cities, the young U-Reporter Scouts participated in the activation by joining U-Report Workshops in their summer camps to learn about the platform's potential and how it can be used on local and national climate actions. "The workshop with U-Report Morocco allowed us to use our voice to advocate for climate," said Amine Majjbar, a young Scout U-Reporter.
