Environmental crisis: Organisations call for urgent intervention

The Global Initiative for Food Security Ecosystem Preservation (GIFSEP), Coal Free Nigeria and on Wednesday, called for urgent intervention to mitigate environmental crisis across the country.

The Executive Director of GIFSEP, Mr Michael Terungwa, made the call at a three-day workshop organised by the NGOs in Abuja.

Young people are key to creating an environment of peace.

Young environmental activists continue to mount pressure on world leaders, policymakers, and other decision-makers to commit to environmental and development targets – and, more importantly, to honour those commitments.

People of all ages and backgrounds are demanding climate justice.

On the 25th March 2022 Rise up Movement was not the only one holding placards, we were joined by over 600 students, teachers, parents and some community members. This sentiment was repeated in the thousands of Climate Strikes held around the world.
