Prominent environmentalist, Temilade Salami, launches children’s book to drive sustainability culture
‘Catch them while they are young’ is the extant philosophy behind the latest literary work from acclaimed environmentalist, Temilade Salami, a children’s comic dubbed ‘Jojo and Jade; Heroes of Mother Earth’, specially nurtured to simplify and promote environmental sustainability to young kids.
“If children are well informed about taking care of the environment at their early age, they would be able to make informed decisions as they grow,” Salami explains as the core motivation behind the book.
Salami who has been actively involved in promoting a culture of environmental sustainability, for some years now, with her non-profit organization, Ecowarriors, comes back again with this book to further preach her gospel of climate protection.
According to her, the illustrations and examples provided in the book provides every child with the opportunity to acquire the right knowledge, values, commitment, and skills needed to protect and improve the environment.
Temilade Salami is no stranger to humanitarian efforts geared at impacting the environmental eco-system. With her background in, Marine Biology, she has acquired an arsenal of skills that have helped her champion several youth-led environmental sustainability initiatives across Nigeria.
Salami, via her organization, has successfully executed non-profit projects including, tree planting, ocean conservation advocacy, plastic waste management and environmental education in Nigeria.
In recognition of her laudable efforts, she was recently named as a 2020 Nigeria’s 25 Under 25 Leader on Energy and Sustainability. Some of her other laurels include the 2018 LASEPA Ambassador against Noise Pollution; 2018 Idea House Talent of the Future; and a 2018 US Consulate’s Carrington Youth Fellow.
When she is not fighting environmentally harmful cultures, Salami likes to nurture her creative writing, creating several poetry masterpieces; all geared promoting the green-environment culture.
This new book would create new patterns of behaviour for children towards the environment and also give them the right information to make informed decision as they grow.
