Climate change is increasingly becoming a hot topic globally and has brought together all nations to find a long lasting solution to the impending catastrophe.
In Uganda, Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green is leading the charge by initiating a number of projects that teach children how to preserve the environment as a measure of mitigating climate change.
This has worked just fine, as the organization has manged to organize a number of environmental events and inspired a multitude of children and parents to embrace the idea of preserving the environment.
And recently the CEO of Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green was in San Francisco, United States of America, joining the reset of the world, participating in this years Rise For Climate March.
While in San Francisco, Joseph Masembe and thousands of activists marched from the Embarcadero to Civic Center to take a stand against climate change.
The march came days before world leaders, researchers and activists arrive in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit, organized by the UN and Governor Jerry Brown.
The Global Climate Action Summit will start on 13th September with a two-day program of invitation-only events, report launches and climate commitment announcements aimed at “Taking Ambition to the Next Level.”
It will end with a Call to Global Climate Action and the Summit outcomes on Sept. 14, asking national governments to raise their ambition by 2020 and looking forward to the UN secretary-general’s leaders’ Summit happening in New York in September 2019.
