Judith Heard embarks on bark cloth tree planting project after emphatic win

 

 

Days after Judith Heard was crowned Miss Environment International Africa at the first-ever themed pageant, Beauty starts with environmental care on April 2, 2022 she has promised to go big.

With a heroes reception yesterday from the event held at CIDCO Exhibition & Convention Centre in India, Judith Heard has decided to preserve one of Uganda’s heritage.

‘’I am thrilled by the warm welcome. I am advocating for a patriarchal society aimed at protecting the heritage of the backcloth. It is unique and grown in Uganda. Not forgetting its craftsmanship, quality, rarity, and storytelling that comes with it.

As Miss Environment Uganda, she encouraged the government, ministry of environment and water, politicians, religious leaders, and individuals to join and support her campaign to launch the backcloth tree planting project.

“Together [we] can take urgent action toward environmental justice, sustainable development, and climate investment solutions.”

The competition united various continents, traditions, and ethnicities with a prime objective of conserving the environment. Other country representatives included South Sudan, Peru, United Kingdom, Seychelles, Mauritius, Greece, Bolivia, Reunion Island, Columbia, India, Philippines, Nigeria, Rodrigues Island, France, Cyprus, and Belgium.
