He says this event allow the voices of young and old to come in solidarity and raise issues concerning the environment and the oceans.

He says students who took part in the campaign had their special messages saying on how to protect the environment and oceans.

He says the participants including the students gathered in a safe space and spoke out on the need to change our behaviour and mindset toward the way people are treating their environment and oceans.

Students from Lelean Memorial School, Vunimono High School, Jai Narayan College, Nakaikogo Primary School and Dilkusha Girls School were part of the campaign.
