Zeddy explains how Fairtrade has helped her take action on the climate crisis locally.
“Climate change is affecting us because the weather patterns have changed. We fear low coffee production in future because of it. But through Fairtrade we have received training on climate change and we are taking action. However, we still need more, because we need to train other people who are not aware about climate change.
“We also need more tree nursery beds, so that we can plant more trees as a way of tackling climate change.”
There is a need for more tree cover in our own country too, extending rural forests but also in towns where we need their green lungs.
