Luanda, September 19 2019: Licypriya Kangujam, the 7 year-old Indian schoolgirl & climate activist from Manipur met the President of Namibia Hage Geingob in the sidelines of UNESCO Partners' Forum held in Luanda, Angola yesterday.

She addressed various concerns about environmental changes in Namibia, especially water scarcity and also urged to enact a climate change law in the country at the earliest.

She further urged the world leader to plant more trees as an ultimate solution to fight the climate change.

Licypriya also met with the President of Angola Joao Lourenco, President of Mali Ibrahim Keita, President of Republic of the Congo Denis Nguesso, First Lady of Angola Ana Lourenco, First Lady of Namibia Monica Geingos, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 2018 Denis Mukwege, UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay and many other great personalities on first day of maiden her visit to the country.

She drew the attention of the world leaders on the rapid global climate crisis and appealed for their immediate action to combat the rising sea level, air & plastic pollution, land desertification, natural disasters, etc.

She said, "As a kid, I have to go to school and read my books.

But when our future is at stake, I feel it's not a wise decision to sit in the class and read about mathematics, science and environment.

I need to raise my voice to save our future before it's too late to all world leaders.

You may not have much impact now but it will be on your own children and grandchildren.

Don't keep our future at stake.

Act Now" .

"I can already see the effects of global warming in my country.

Internally displaced people, farmer–herdsmen clashes are all driven by climate change," she says.

The increase in food price, floods sweeping away farmers' land, droughts affecting the yield of crops and excessive rainfall are the consequences of the change, she remarked.

She will participate in the Global Climate Strike in front of the National Assembly of Angola with her supporters and other fellow young climate activists of the world, on September 20, in support of Greta Thunberg, Swedish climate activist.

The main event will be at UN Headquarters, New York and this will be the first climate movement in Angola under her leadership to ignite young minds and youth of Angola to take concern on climate change.

Meanwhile, she will also be organizing a massive climate protest in front of the Parliament House of India with hundreds of children along with their parents and environmentalists on September 27 .

She wrote in her twitter, "Parents must come out with their children to save our future" .

Professor Sir David King, Former Chief Scientists of UK says he has been scared by the number of extreme events and called for the UK to advance its climate targets by 10 years.

But the UN's weather chief said using words like "scared" could make young people depressed and anxious.

However, campaigners argue that people won't act unless they feel fearful.

Prof King responded that it is appropriate to be scared and said, "We predicted that temperatures would rise but we didn't foresee these sorts of extreme events which we're getting so soon" .
