Mr. Green’s motivation is his Life’s Development Goals (LDGs) which are his rudder and sails in his life. These LDGs are to respect and affirm the inalienable dignity of the human person, promote education for all and foster global environmental sustainability.
Mr Green was not young when he became a crusader for the environment. As a kid, he looked at nature with great admiration but didn’t really understand life’s interdependencies. His ego for knowledge pushed him to understand life’s interdependencies such as the power of education, the oneness of humanity, internconnectedness of all biotic and abiotic fators of Mother Earth and the oneness of planet Earth. These inspired him to start a youth movement that would inspire, educate, empower and engage a generation of change-makers who think globally and act locally.
Mr. Green is married and has two kids. He is funny, likes to laugh and enjoys spending time with friends and his family. Mr. Green has a strong passion for connecting, inspiring, and collaborating young change-makers to build thriving, just and sustainable ways of life for all. His passion resides in the domains of youth development, education, climate change, green economy, agroforestry, biodiversity conservation, arts for conservation, capacity building, and waste management.
