UNICEF has cooperated with Vietnamese dancer Quang Dang in releasing a new dance challenge on social media to promote World Children’s Day (November 20) and raise awareness of climate change and the environment.

Dang choreographed the moves in the song ‘Let’s Act Together for Nature,’ a joint product of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, singer Quan A.P, and Nguyen Jenda, the UN agency said in press release on Friday.

“Dance can be very powerful to raise awareness, so I wish to use my talent for the cause of children,” said Dang.

“We are all concerned about protecting the environment and I want to encourage everyone, adults and children, to act together to ensure every child can enjoy a greener and cleaner future.”

“Children have so many ways of expressing themselves and showing that they care about our planet,” said Rana Flowers, UNICEF representative in Vietnam.

“By collaborating with Quang Dang, we want to encourage children to take action to protect the environment.

“Every action, however small, can have a big impact on our communities and on children’s future.”

Quang Dang rose to fame worldwide with his 'handwashing dance' released in March amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in Vietnam.

World Children’s Day is celebrated around the world to mark the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989.

The theme of this year’s celebration in Vietnam is ‘Reimaging a Greener and Cleaner Vietnam for Every Child.’

The celebration is meant to be a ‘day for children, by children’ and for them to feel inspired to take action.
