CBD COP11: Children have a role to play in environmental action

CBD COP11 (8/10/2012) – Jayaprakash Nambaru, founder of the iGoGreen Foundation (IGGF), explains his work encouraging children to take simple measures with a big positive environmental impact.

Nambaru quotes the monitoring and tracking of energy usage in schools as a particularly successful project.

Nambaru thinks that children are more receptive to environmental concerns than adults, thus can be a good route to allowing their parents to understand and take action on environmental issues.
