“Children are passionate about protecting the environment and we believe we have a responsibility to help them.  LEGO play is about equipping children with skills to tackle 21st century problems, and there is nothing more urgent than building a sustainable future.  

The partnership is part of our Planet Promise – to have a positive impact on the world and society children will inherit. Engaging children around the issues which shape their future is key to fulfilling this promise.”
