Powershift Nepal has organised a Rise for Climate event in Kathmandu on Friday to raise awareness about climate change and other environmental issues.
Prior to the event, school students were made aware of climate change through workshops. They also organised a rally from South Point School. A total of five schools and students of forestry and environment took part in the event. Later, a flash mob was organised at Bijulibazaar Bridge to raise awareness about the emerging climate breakdown.
Apart from that, a programme was organised at the Pathsala School where Chairman of ward-10 Ram Kumar KC and a member of Province 3 Dipendra Shrestha were asked to float their views on growing issues of climate change and global warming.
World is planning to organise thousands of rallies in cities and towns around the world on September 7-9 to pile pressure on local leaders to build a fossil free world that puts people and justice before profit. Mayors, governors, and local leaders have been invited to make a bold climate commitment to help the world reach the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
