UNPA superheroes seek to empower children to fight climate change


The United Nations Postal Administration released a special stamp sheet for the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP28 – held in the United Arab Emirates. Two denominations on the sheet of 10 stamps feature the United Nations logo. There are five U.S. $1.45 stamps on the left half of the sheet and five 1.10-Swiss franc stamps on the right half. The tabs of the stamps feature the United Nations Climate Action Superheroes.

The UNPA says the theme is to empower children to be heroic leaders for change and believe in the impact they can have on the planet. The superheroes aim to educate and engage children on how to help limit global warming and care for the environment.

The tabs on the left side of the sheet represent the following Climate Action Superheroes:

  • Truth Talker, who has the facts about climate change and tells others about it
  • Veggie Vindicator, who educates everyone on why to eat – and appreciate – more veggies
  • Recycle Ranger, who knows proper recycling techniques and shows others what items belong in which bin
  • Green Guide, who keeps plants healthy and doesn’t let them go to waste

The tabs on the right side of the sheet represent the following Climate Action Superheroes:

  • Fashion Fixer, who mends, donates and keeps clothing
  • Water Wizard, who keeps dangerous plastics from getting into the ocean and makes sure you don’t let water go to waste
  • Energy Expert, who never wastes electricity and always turns off the lights when unnecessary
  • Fume Fighter, a defender of clean air who protects the atmosphere from bad fumes
