A class-II student from Manipur, Licypriya Kangujam who has been grabbing headlines for her fierce movement against climate change has this time urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pass the Climate Change law on priority so that India can be greener within the next 5 years.
The 8-year-old green activist who dropped out of school to raise concerns on saving the planet was the youngest delegate at the 14th Conference of Parties (COP14) of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) this year.
The country’s youngest environmental activist recently took to her Facebook handle and shared a post addressing to PM Modi, “Dear Mr Narendra Modi, Pass the Climate Change Law to adopt planting minimum 10 trees to all students of India to pass their final exam. 350 millions students of India x 10 trees = 3.5 billions trees a year. Trust me! India will be green in 5 years. Act Now!” she wrote.
The post has garnered a humongous response with more than 7000 shares till the filing of this report. Facebook users supported the cause and the girl’s spirits.
Lucypriya who originally hails from Manipur also updated that she will meet Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa to include Climate Change as a compulsory subject in Karnataka School Board curriculum.
Earlier this year she was in the news for inventing a device to tackle air pollution. She named it SUKIFU (Survival Kit For the Future), designed from the trash. It is almost a zero budget kit which will provide fresh air into our body and when the pollution rate is high.
She was awarded Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Children Award, a World Children Peace Prize, and India Peace Prize in 2019.
