Rhoda Robinson , Hacey’s Health Initiative
From Qatar: COP18 UN Climate Change Conference 2012
COP18 (27/11/12) – Rhoda Robinson, Director of Administration at Hacey’s Health Initiative talks about a project they are involved in called the Global Action Classroom. She explains how it aims to bring together children from different countries to share their environmental projects.
She explains her work in Nigeria, where the children are taught about the environment, conduct their own projects – including tree planting, clean-up and sanitation projects – and then share that with children from across the world.
She says so far they have shared their experience with others in Brazil and Ghana, and explains that with each new connection they are able to build up a global picture of climate change.
