Emmaryn Leuzzi, a climate advocate has called on the authorities of schools to inculcate best practices in environmental protection as part of their education. 

She made the call at the launch of her project “Classy Climactiv” at the Jack and Jill School in Accra, after completing the training program of Climate Education Leaders Fellowship (CELF). The project focused on identifying practices that school children could adopt as “classy”. 

Practicing the use of water bottles instead of single-use plastics like water sachets, segregating waste, saving water while brushing their teeth and washing bowls, planting and nurturing plants etc were some of the “classy” habits that she encouraged the pupils to adopt. 

As part of her best practices project, Emmaryn donated plants, reusable water bottles and bowls to the school. 

Speaking to MX24 TV, she stated “ that little drops of water make a mighty ocean, thus if the younger generations were socialized into adopting best practices on pollution, waste management and energy conservation, we would soon have a more responsible society. Moreover, climate education should be demystified and be as practically simple as it can be. While waiting on the GES and MESTI to finalize the curriculum for climate education, concerned advocates like me would like to take a step closer” 

Mrs Tetteh-Kwofie, the headmistress of Jack and Jill School, lauded Ms Leuzzi’s efforts and urged that the initiative be replicated in other sessions of the school as well as the Parents Teachers Association (PTA)because “it is enlightening and we all have a role to play in protecting what is left of the environment”.
