Green Earth

The Port Harcourt hub of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers Community commemorated the 2019 World Environment Day with a Walk for Clean Air and a tree planting exercise.

As the usual practice every year, the United Nations has set aside the 5th of June of every year to mark the world’s environment day. In 2018, the theme was centered on the need to Beat Plastic Pollution. For 2019 however, the celebration focused on Air Pollution, with the theme – Beat Air Pollution.

The Port Harcourt Global Shapers Community in partnership with Clean Cyclers and supported by other environment stakeholders such as Green Earth NG, SustyVibes, Safe Habitat NGO, Stop The Soot and many others, came together for the event to mark the 2019 World Environment Day.

The Walk for Clean Air kicked off from Sasun Roundabout, Odili Road with a talk by ThankGod Okorisha, the curator of the Port Harcourt Global Shapers Community and Tunde Bello, the convener of Stop The Soot Initiative. The event also had the likes of Eugene Abel - a front runner activist who champions the need for a safe and habitable environment. Youths from different parts of the city joined in the walk at different locations all the way to Elelewon where the tree planting exercise took place. 

The need to take climate action in combating climate change cannot be overemphasize as air pollution is one menace that affects every single human all over the world. The event was indeed a success and we enjoin citizens to embrace the fight against climate change through restoration of our environment.
