PASSION

Passion has been my lead in all I do. My first climate advocacy was in 2017 which was found in the need to promote clean and green environment. This passion has birthed many outstanding projects at both local, national and international communities. Here is one of my favorite quote More Action, less talk.Del Report

 

PROBLEM

The major problem faced in my community ranges from indiscriminate waste disposal, oil spillage, plastic pollution and food insecurity. This has generated a lot concern to me, especially in low communities that finds it difficult to cope with the adverse effect of this action which at times gives rise to disease outbreak, food scarcity and even violent conflict.May be an image of child

SOLUTION

I have coordinated, and planned projects that taught teachers and students on climate, green economy and sustainability, hosted interviews with policy makers and stakeholders, carried out environment assessment surveys on loss and damage associated with climate change in rural communities, organize climate strike and campaigns and has led several climate advocacy and dialogue for clean and green environment, plastic pollution, waste management and sustainable environment practices. Thereby creating an enabling platform for me to share my skills, experience, transfer knowledge, and release tangible information with other youth and learn from diversified scholars with amazing perspectives on climate and sustainability in a broader scope to tackle the issues of climate change, waste disposal, oil spillage, plastic pollution and value chain in food supply.May be an image of 1 person, standing and suit
