This year’s International Children’s Climate Change Conference will look at curbing pollution of the environment using plastic wastes, restoring of wetland and planning for and protection of the environment for future use.
Joseph Masembe, the chief executive office of the Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green, the NGO organizing the meeting says the theme ‘End Plastic pollution, Restore Nature – protect the future’ is timely and comes at a time when stakeholders are trying to enforce some of the country’s laws to safeguard the environment.
The annual climate conference which brings together hundreds of pupils from different schools in Uganda, Rwanda and beyond will take place on Friday 20th April, 2018 at Ntinda School of the Deaf. Masembe said the move to go to the school of the deaf is to inspire them to reach their full potential.
“Being deaf does not mean one is defeated. These children from Ntinda School of the Deaf are some of the brightest conservation soldiers I have ever met. It is therefore my duty as an able bodied human being to inspire all including the deaf and hard of hearing children to reach their full potential,”
“Environmental Conservation is a job for all of us. We will therefore join our hosts from the Ntinda School of the Deaf as we seek for solutions to End Plastic pollution, Restore Nature and provide hope for a Greener future.”
