Here’s a guest post from Kelechi Okezie and Kenneth Okoro, founders of the Enyidda Neighborhood Environment Watch (NEW) and 350 organizers in southern Nigeria:
More than 1000 people attended the Enyidda 350 event organised by Neighborhood Environment Watch. The Deputy Governor of Ebonyi state, Prof. Ogbu and an adviser to the Governor came to the event and spoke on the need to reduce carbon emissions and become part of the global movement. The community wrote an eight-point communique promoting a pollution free environment and recognizing the 350 target.
Even kids in their Tae Kwon Do lessons and football players at the nearby Abakaliki township stadium were inspired to kick the carbon habit.
