Dubai, United Arab Emirates - 01-30-2023 -
International Model and Influencer, Eric Akoa has revealed his plans to embark on tree planting project, where he hopes to plant about one million trees across six countries of the world.
The project, he said is aimed at reducing the adverse effects of climate change on the earth. He listed the benefitting countries as Cameroon, Nigeria, Madagascar, Ghana, Kenya and Rwanda.
The project, which he intends to carry out through his foundation, Eric Akoa Initiative will commence immediately.
The 28-year-old Model and Influencer made this revelation, while speaking at the media presentation of his new book, ‘The Remains of the Earth: Ending Climate Crisis,” which held last Sunday, in Dubai, UAE.
The book, which focuses on the effects of climate change on the earth, was formally presented to the reading public on Sunday, January 7th in Dubai.
The Model and Influencer who is also an Environmental Activist, described as worrisome the fact that in some parts of Africa, people don’t believe that climate change exists. Despite this misconception, she said, serious climate issues like flooding, drought, loss of biodiversity leading to infectious diseases, are rife in Africa.
He listed the countries that are very vulnerable to the effects of climate change to include Japan, Philippines, Germany, Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Rwanda, Canada and the Fiji Islands.
“Japan, as we all know, has suffered the worst hit of earthquakes. The Philippines has suffered from typhoons, earthquakes and other disasters. It is so sad because they are very vulnerable because of the position they occupy in the earth’s equator. And it just happens that they are the ones that are greatly affected by climate change. Our cause is to make sure that as we make sales on this book, we are going to these specific countries. We are selecting six of them, to plant trees and to also make sure that the impact of climate change is eased. It is important to note that each book sale equals two trees planted,” he said.
A ten-chapter book, ‘The Earth Is Important Too’ covers the effects of climate change in Africa, the effect of biodiversity in the Middle East, the activities of companies regarding the emission of fossil fuel, how politics is affecting the fight against climate catastrophe, the agricultural controversy surrounding climate change as well as government’s response to climate change.
The Cameroonian model said it took him about one year to write the book. Just as he revealed why he got involved in modelling, saying “Modelling and Influencing “gives me the platform to use my gifts in fighting climate crisis.”
