It was all green as over 40 schools both local and International attended the Little Hands Go Green’s 4TH Annual International Children’s Climate Change Conference which took place at Kampala International School Uganda (KISU).
Younger stars from different schools showcased several motions regarding environmental conservation and condemned the ongoing environmental destruction processes like deforestation, swamps and wetland reclamation among others.
The delegation from Rwanda’s Little Go Green also attended the conference and challenged the Ugandan government to do more and fight against environment degradation. They reasoned out why the government has failed to completely ban use of polythene bag like it is in Rwanda.
Joseph Masembe Executive Director Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green called on the young generation to conserve the environment through preserving the green citing that the future of a better environment is in their hands.
To highlight the day, the chief guest State Minister for Environment Mary Goretti Kitutu planted a tree at KISU as a practical example to pupils on what they should do to the doled out trees.
“The government is coming up with tough measures to fight encroachment and as directed by President all people who encroached on swamps and forests are to vacate by July this year,” said Minister Kitutu
