Being an environmental activist is a title someone of any age can hold. All you need to be is someone who cares deeply for the health and survival of our planet and its inhabitants, and who wants to do something to take care of it. Whether a big or small contribution, every single action matters.
This is true for these 5 inspiring young people from South Africa, who are paving the way for change! From an 11-year-old recycling warrior to a 14-year-old girl from Khayelitsha who is spreading awareness in her community – the youth are setting change into motion.
World Environment Day is organized by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and has been held annually since 1974. The goal of the day of action is to promote environmental awareness and draw attention to crucial concerns around our planet’s survival, that require active engagement and commitment. Today, the day represents one of the largest global platforms for environmental action, with millions of participants from around the world. Each World Environment Day focuses on a specific issue that reflects urgent problems and challenges of our time, such as climate change, biodiversity loss or pollution.
Composting is surprisingly easy with these 4 steps – you can even do it at home, and don’t need a lot of space.
