Climate Justice With & For Children

Climate change consequences have been labeled as very significant challenges encountered within the country. These challenges are disproportionally affecting children and every aspect of their life as they will have to bear the largest share of the burden. Children possess the right to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health. Worth mentioning that a whole host of other children’s rights are intimately connected to the environment. This is why PGDO is working on providing environmental awareness sessions to children aged between 6 and 12 years old. On November 20th, 2022, PGDO conducted its first awareness session with 20 children in Baharka area. This session was conducted with an expert who possesses great interest in children and ways to maintain their wellbeing and fruitful futures. The session focused on promoting critical and creative thinking skills while inspiring children to become more further aware of environmental issues and engaged within their communities. The fate of the planet will be in their hands, so they must learn how to use resources wisely and do their bit in the battle against climate change from an early age to live eco-friendly and sustainable lives.
