Musician Okyeame Kwame has joined hands with many people around the world to march in Glasgow to demand more action on the climate crisis.

The protest was the biggest so far during the COP26 summit and took place alongside hundreds of similar events around the world.

The musician who has been named Climate Clock Ambassador for Africa/Ghana interacted with some international media outlets, stressing that there must be a rapid transition to a safe climate future in the world.

“The children are innocent, we must not destroy their future with our irresponsible behaviour. We don’t inherit this planet from our foremothers, we rent it from our unborn children. We can pretend that it is business as usual or make a conscious effort to cause a positive change.”

He added, “Climate colonisation must stop, climate injustice must stop, large livestock farming must stop, river pollution must stop, fossil fuel mining must stop and we demand timelines now.”
