United Nations Environment Programme
TUNZA is a word in Kiswahili (the common language of most East African countries) that means to "treat with care".
The programme is based on a strategy that aims to provide young people with information and tools on how to "treat Mother Earth with care" and how to Act for a better world.
UNEP works in partnership with Children from all over the world. Children are represented by Junior Board which is elected every 2 years during UNEP's TUNZA International Children's Conference.
