ULK/GISENYI CAMPUS BRIEFED ON ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION
As the whole world is getting to commemorate WED (World Environment Day), on 24th May 2017 REMA (Rwanda Environment Management) sent an expert, Mr. Jean Luc, at ULK/Gisenyi Campus to give a talk that aimed at raising awareness on emerging environmental issues and encouraging action for the protection of environment.
After disclosing WED 2017 Theme -Connecting people to nature- Jean Luc reminded the audience that WED is an annual event where the UN Environment seeks to make the biggest global call and mobilization for positive environment action. He went further stating and elaborating on emerging environmental issues from pollution, global warming, and so forth. Conclusively, Mr. Jean Luc urged all the people in attendance to ascertain they partake in greening, beautifying their environment, thus making it a safe place to live.
“It goes without saying that the earth is subject to various environmental issues, such as pollution, climate change, etc. Sad to say, man is responsible for some of these environmental issues. People are influencing nature in a way or another. It’s high time, anyway, that each and everyone should stand more than willing to take positive action for greening and beatifying our environment (…….)” he underscored.
Good enough, Jean Luc eventually praised ULK for the efforts combined to keep its campuses green and beautiful by planting lawns and trees.
