Peter Makwanya, a climate change communicator, writes for NewsDay and shares his opinion on sustainable living and survival of children.

He highlights the essence of environmental eco-prenuership for sustainable development as a key factor for sustainable living and the next generation's survival.

Makwanya defines eco-prenuership as a deliberate human innovation to expand the supply of natural resources and improve the quality of the environment.
