National days & events

Fun resources and activities throughout the year!

Throughout the year, there are numerous national (and international) days and events that are supported by WWF. To support young people in learning more about these days, we’ve compiled a range of engaging resources and activities for young people that can be used at home, in school, or in community and youth groups. For each day / event we include information that will introduce the topic at hand, as well as a fun craft activity and information on how you can take action and support WWF.
