Delivering the feature address last Monday, President Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona said he was proud of his alma-mater for joining the Carbon Zero Initiative. He described it as one of the “transformational initiatives” in which ‘Pres’ has been involved. The college is undertaking the project jointly with CZITT, the Carbon Zero Initiative of Trinidad and Tobago, which aims to reduce carbon footprints by changing behaviour.
President Carmona told the gathering of students, staff, volunteers and sponsors that they are carving a niche since the nation must not be indifferent to the claims demanded by future generations and climate change is not just a hoax. He urged them to foster the next generation of leaders of climate change since the only way to effectively tackle the problem is “to empower people to act”.
