Pupils and Students engaged in environmental protection through environmental education in Kumba, South-West Region

On the 15th and 16th of June 2021, the Association for Biodiversity Conservation and Rural Development (ABCARD), launched her project on engaging the youths and community members on the restoration of degraded areas around the  Lake Barombi Mbo  Forest through regenerative agriculture. In this light 3 schools (Mulang Academy, Elicyp Standard Foundation and Government High School Ngamalikum) with over 100 pupils and students were sensitized on the effect of climate change and the threats it poses to humanity and biodiversity. Pupils and students expressed their support for the protection of the environment through demonstration of the different environmental threats such as climate change, drought, flooding, pollution, deforestation, global warming on cardboard. They recommended for greater involvement of pupils/students in environmental related activities such as tree planting in schools, water catchments and degraded areas as well as support to environment clubs activities. This project is made possible thanks to the financial support from Earth Rising Foundation.
