Published in Press Releases

Each year the world celebrates Earth Day on the 22nd of April.  This year, the theme of Earth Day is "the face of climate change", reminding us all of the personal impact climate change has and will have on real people all over the world.

As a small island developing state, Seychelles is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, such as drought, sea level rise, storm surges, flooding and landslides. In order to raise awareness for climate change and other environmental issues, Wildlife Clubs of Seychelles is joining with UniSey and other partners to organize an Earth Day Festival for children and youth.

The program of the day which includes presentations, creative workshops, and an exhibition featuring a wide range of environmental groups active in Seychelles will kick off at 10 am until 2pm. The day will finish up with musical performances from special guests such as Smash Kid, Curious and Telsy. 

The festival which is being sponsored by the GEF small grants program as well as the EU will be open to the public.  Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Hence the University of Seychelles and the Wildlife Club Seychelles wishes to invite your esteemed media house on Monday 22nd April at 2pm for coverage of this important event.
