Youths challenged to take proactive role in climate change fight

Posted in

Speaking during a tree-planting exercise organized by the Mponela Youth Network in Kasalika Village, Traditional Authority Mponela, Dowa District Youth Network Chairperson, Sankhulani M’mbanga, appealed to young people to embrace initiatives that will help curb climate change.

“I urge my fellow youths to not only act on the climate change but also innovate in some other aspects of social life such as the economic circle,” said M’mbanga.

The exercise, which took place on Saturday, was an eye-opener for other youth networks in the district, according to Happy Mtambo, the spokesperson for the Mponela Youth Network.

“This initiative has demonstrated that Malawian youths can play a vital role in mitigating the devastating impacts of climate change,” said Mtambo.

The Kasalika Village Head also commended the youths for their efforts and encouraged them to continue embracing initiatives that will protect the environment for future generations.

The Mponela Youth Network, established in 2022, has 89 active members from different youth clubs. Through initiatives such as tree planting exercises, these young people are proving that they are committed to making a positive impact in their communities and the country at large.
