I got involved in activism some two years back when i realized how the plastic pollution is destroying our ecosystems and also the climate crisis we humans are facing. I along with my team am currently working on the 13th and 14th SDG’s that are the climate change and life below water by carrying out tree plantings, restoring mangroves and holding beach cleanups. I do all this because first of all it’s my passion to protect and conserve the elements of the earth such as the oceans, plants, animals, and second we are all at a risk to climate change. I strongly believe that with all the support from my fellow environmentalists, we will see a healthy planet for our future generations.
Fiona Mugure : Eden Stewards
I believe change starts with me, and if not me, then who? This makes me not let someone else do it, because if that’s what we all did, then no one would ever do something. I like championing for a clean and green environment, I try my best by spreading awareness to primary school going children about climate change, and I also plant and grow trees; and avoid using plastic waste, a small thing, but hoping for it to become a chain reaction that will ripple to all around me.
