After failing to make it for last year’s Superstar Kids Green Festival August, the Earth Guardians are scheduled to attend this year’s annual International Kids’ Climate Change conference due April 12.
According to info on their website, the Earth Guardians are a tribe of young activists, artists, and musicians from across the globe stepping up as leaders and co-creating the future.
Joseph Masembe – the CEO Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green, the organisers of the annual International Kids’ Climate Change Conference told us that he met with 15-year-old indigenous climate activist Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez, a youth director of the non-profit organisation during a trip to the USA and he expressed interest to attend one of his events in Uganda.
And earlier this week, Chamilla Wangohi, the operations manager at Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green, told us that they had finally received confirmation from the US-based environment activist group to attend the upcoming conference.
According to Wangohi, while here, the group will visit several schools where they will plant trees, encourage youngsters to conserve the environment and also do live performances.
“These guys rap and recite poems about the environment, they even have environment dances. They will have a presentation at the conference and will perform for the delegates,” Wangohi said.
The other person that can testify about the talented Earth Guardians is none other than former UN president Sam Kutesa, who witnessed firsthand as Xiuhtezcatl Roske-Martinez put up an outstanding presentation that turned heads at a UN meeting sometime last year.
The conference that will attract more than 300 child delegates from more than 100 International school- also the hosts and Vivo energy Uganda.
