With support from the Delegation of the European Union to the Kingdom of Lesotho, The Hub hosted 180 students from 3 primary schools for 3 days of World Environment Day activities from June 1-3, 2022.
World Environment Day (June 5) was celebrated under the theme #OnlyOneEarth. Led by the United Nations Environment Programme and held annually since 1973, the event is the largest global platform for environmental outreach. It engages governments, businesses, academia and millions of people around the world.
We have #OnlyOneEarth. Let’s take care of it.
The 2022 World Environment Day campaign #OnlyOneEarth calls for collective, transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.
The Hub hosted 180 students from Matsieng to tour our photography exhibition on climate change and environmental degradation. Some students won exciting prizes for answering difficult questions about what they have learned! The Hub also handed out copies of our environmental education posters to all the students.
We were honoured to have the Head of the European Union Delegation to the Kingdom of Lesotho, Paola Amadei, with us on Friday, June 3!
Special thanks to the European Union in Lesotho for their support of the tours! Big thanks to Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa and European Union in Lesotho for supporting the photography workshop which this exhibition is the result of. Big thanks also to the UK in Lesotho for supporting the printing of the exhibition and the creation of the take-home learning materials.
