I had the honour to moderate a Pre-World Environment Day dialogue meeting that brought together environmental interest groups and stakeholders such as the Ministry Of Green Economy and Environment, the European Union, WWF, ZANACO and ZEMA among others.
Agents Of Change Foundation Zambia (AcFZ), the Young and Emerging Farmers Initiative (YEFI)and a business entity SEVENTEEN in Lusaka’s Avondale, Munali Constituency are at the heart of this milestone.
The dialogue which was anchored on the Theme “Adapting Business Systems To A Climate Smart And Green Economy” acts as a reminder on the need to adopt new and innovative ideas critical in the preservation of mother Earth from further damage as has been necessitated by the adverse effects of Climate Change.
World Environment Day Falls on 🌞 Sunday June 5th and 2022 is particularly significant as it marks 50 years since this day was designated.
This year’s global theme is ” Only One Earth” a re-adoption of the 1972 theme.
