PRISCILLA ACHAKPA – Interview with Vogue Magazine “Where is the future of young people if we don’t do anything? ” .
Priscilla Achakpa is an environmental activist from Nigeria. As executive director of the Women Environmental Programme, Achakpa has introduced thousands of women to sustainable solutions to everyday problems, such as waste-to-energy machines that can process rice husks. In Nigeria, Achakpa says, “The impact of climate change on women is huge. The men are forced to migrate and they leave the women, who are now the caregivers because they find they cannot leave the children . We don’t want a top-down solution” to climate change, says Achakpa. “We want bottom-up. But we need to be at the table.”
