Children are 27% of the world’s people but they are 100% of the future
For the world to become a better place, the next generation needs to be better informed than the last.
What is Children United?
Children know what's going on in the world, but the world doesn't know what's going on with children. In 2016 we're going to change that.
Children United will work with children in the UK, and around the world, to help them stand together and change their world.
Children United will be a digital space where the world's children can learn from each other in a safe and positive environment. It will be a community where they're empowered to engage with each other and the challenges facing children around the world.
How will Children United work?
In 2016 we're going to create the world's first global digital community of children for children - and we're looking for schools to help us take the first step.
We aim to be led by children from the start - so we'll be looking for schools and groups to help us deliver another first: a children's digital platform, designed by children. If you're interested in helping us do this, sign up below.
Our founders include education and children's publishing experts, and one of the world's leading children's charities - but you know your children best. So if you've got children in your life, we want you involved from the start.
How do the children in your life like to learn? To play? To create? Do they understand the news? Do they like talking to you about it? Do they want to learn more about it or do something to change the things in the world they're unhappy about?
These are some of the questions we're going to start working on in 2016. So if you want to help us take this first step, sign up today!
Who’s behind it?
We're proud to be backed by some of the biggest names in children's news publishing, education and children's campaigning - and now we're looking for schools to help us develop our digital platform in 2016.

We asked 1,000 children how they'd like to change the world. This is what they said.
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
