Episode Info:

Tune in to hear my interview with the founder of the Sierra Leone School Green Club. We talk about how and why he started the club, what they've been doing to make a difference and their plans for the upcoming September 20, 2019 School Strike for the Climate

Alhassan Sesay's personal motto is, "If not us, who? If not now, when?" 

Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world and is already experiencing the impacts of climate change. In 2013, the United Nations warned that the country was particularly vulnerable to increasing frequency and severity of droughts, floods and severe storms. 

In 2015, Alhassan Sesay founded the Sierra Leone School Green Club. In 2016, he attended a training in Ghana as part of YALI, the Young African Leaders Initiative. 

Since then, the SLSGC has organized multiple workshops, training and advocacy events, including the first #FridaysforFuture in Sierra Leone. They also participated in the May 2019 School Strike for the Climate and are planning an event for the September 2019 Global Climate Strike.
