The Green Revolution
It is an initiative by the ICCE towards tackling climate change and preserving the goodness of the earth and the environment, in association with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
“People across the world are struggling with the everyday realities of climate change. The poor in developing countries are hit hardest and face difficult challenges: How to deal with higher temperatures, changes in rain patterns, rising sea levels, and more frequent weather-related disasters? How to adapt to climate change? How to mitigate the risks for agriculture, food, and water supplies? In addition, cities are growing and in 20 years, almost 5 billion people will live in cities that will emit about three-quarters of the world’s greenhouse gases. At stake are recent gains in the fight against poverty, hunger and disease, and the lives and livelihood of billions of people in developing countries. Low carbon economic development that is climate-friendly and climate-resilient will require huge leaps forward in innovation, knowledge sharing, and capacity building.
Green (R)evolution – Action against Climate Change is an initiative by International Centre for Culture & Education (ICCE). This initiative is about spreading knowledge on the effects of Climate Change and the actions we can take within our own capacity. It is done through various activities such as certification programs, campaigns & workshops for General Public, Students and Corporates.
Under the leadership of the Secretary-General, United Nations- governments have advanced international efforts to fight, mitigate and adapt to climate change.”
