Catherine Patricks-Chinemerem took her message and awareness campaign about the importance of carbon sinks, to the university campus on 11 May 2017 when she presented to a cross-section of senior lecturers and members of the academia at the department of Forestry of the Rivers State University in Port Harcourt (Nigeria). In her presentation, Catherine focused on solving the climate crisis with the help of the University’s Forestry Department’s eco-system.

During the presentation, our fantastic Climate Leader persuaded the academics to take urgent actions to promote a campaign that will help to halt the fast increasing rate of deforestation in many parts of Nigeria. The climax of the mobilisation took place on 17 August 2017 at the Rivers State University in Port Harcourt with tree planting. As an offshoot of the actions agreed upon in May, the entire university community including the Vice chancellor, the principal officers of the university, members of the public, local media, NGO/CSO” s and students were all in attendance.

Catherine supported this historic event which was themed: Historic Tree Planting. Her visible role at the event was to support the day and events presentation, participate during the tree planting exercise and also help to provide refreshment to the participants. She mentions that she was happy to bear that cost.

However, Catherine never ceased to take the opportunity during the event to explore and share the importance and big role forests and forest resources play towards terrestrial carbon sequestration and in providing home to a wide range of biological species (biodiversity).

The event was historic as it marked the very first time the university in its more than 35 years of existence that it organized and hosted such an event called – FOREST RESOURCES CONSERVATION Day.
