TTUTA on a Tuesday
IN MARCH 2019, TTUTA on Tuesday would have highlighted action taken by students around the globe to underscore the need to move climate change higher up onto the global agenda in terms of securing a future for all children, interestingly the theme of this year’s commemoration of World Children’s Day – “A future for All Children.”
At the just concluded COP26 conference on climate change, one of the key messages that emerged is that we all need to do more.
