Meet Kehkashan Basu | Protecting The Environment | #KidsCan | Nickelodeon Together for Good

Meet Kehkashan Basu from United Arab Emirates, a 2016 International Children's Peace Prize winner and one of Nickelodeon and KidsRights Foundation's Together For Good #KidsCan changemakers! Kehkashan fights for our planet by taking care of the environment. Watch Kehkashan's story below:

Born on the 5th of June, which is World Environment Day, Kehkashan has always had a deep connection with nature. So, on her eighth birthday, she decided to plant her very first tree. From there, her influence on the community grew bigger and bigger, until she became the United Nations' Environment Coordinator for Children and Youth. She also started her own organisation - Green Hope - that fights for our planet, like planting trees, cleaning up public spaces, and organising events where kids can learn about the environment. In every way possible, Kehkashan is motivating everyone to live greener.

Kids everywhere have the power to make a difference, regardless of age or location. See how kids all over the world can do their part to make the world a better place just like Kehkashan at and! #KidsCan
