At the beach cleaning drive in the Philippines


The ICA-AP Committee on Youth Cooperation (ICYC) organised the second Go Green Campaign to commemorate International Mother Earth Day on April 22. This year, ICYC was joined by ICA Africa Youth Network in its initiative to promote action by youth on SDG 13 (climate change). The theme of the campaign was ‘protect your species’ by ethical planting, and it ran for three days from April 21 to 23.  Over 200 youth from India, Indonesia, Iran, Nepal, the Philippines and Pakistan undertook tree plantation drives in their offices and neighbouring areas. The youth from the Philippines also took up a clean-up drive at the beaches.
