Eagles Relief and Development, a local development and humanitarian non-governmental organisation (NGO), has said involving the youth in climate change clubs instils a sense of caring for nature in them.
Speaking on Wednesday during a field visit at Dalabani in Sub-Traditional Authority Kachenga in Balaka during a field visit Eagles Relief and Development director Victor Mughogho said promotion of mindset change in youths to conserve nature can help in environmental management.
“The youth should grow up knowing the importance of environmental conservation so that they teach their parents the fight against climate change,” he said.
Mughogho also said mindset change on environmental management could graduate into a culture of caring for trees and enhancing water management.
Dalabani Primary School Climate Change Club chair Muhammad Edward said youth in the area are eager to conserve trees in the fight against climate change, but drought and lack of watering tools affect survival of trees in the area.
Eagles Relief and Development is a development arm of the Living Waters Church. n
