The build up to this year’s International Children’s Climate Change Conference to be held on Friday 20th April 2018 at Ntinda School for the Deaf is taking shape and getting the needed momentum.
Little Hands Go Green, the organizers of the climate change conference targeting children in Uganda and East Africa, on March 26th, joined their partner Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) at the Environmental Champions Award Ceremony which was held at Kitante Primary School.
At the ceremony, outstanding children were selected and crowned as Little Hands Go Green Ambassadors in their Schools. And 10 of the best school exhibitions highlighting this year's conference theme of End Plastic Pollution, Restore Wetlands and Protect Nature will be showcased at this year's conference.
The Director Education Services at KCCA commended Little Hands Go Green for their continued partnership with KCCA ‘in greening up’ schools and fostering sound environmental practice in schools.
The CEO of Little Hands Go Green Joseph Masembe thanked the environmental patrons of the schools for ‘continuously helping to drive and support the children in environmental conservation education even when it is not part of the formal education curriculum.’
