The official release of the book "The Remains of the Earth" took place on the 7th of January 2023 in Dubai, UAE. The author, a Cameroonian model and Influencer based in Dubai, is counting on the sale of his book to finance a reforestation project to plant one million trees in six countries around the world.
Governments should immediately intensify their efforts to combat climate change. That is the message of the book entitled “The Remains of the Earth: Ending Climate Crisis”. The book was officially launched on January 7th, 2023 in Dubai.
The author is none other than Eric Akoa, a Cameroonian model who is also a climate enthusiast. Through ten chapters, he presents the effects of climate change in Africa, the destruction of biodiversity in the Middle East, air pollution caused by fossil fuels, and the negative influence of current public policies on climate disaster prevention. “The ball is in our court. We must make efforts to reduce our emissions, reuse our waste or recycle it. We must also ensure that future generations will not have an even more negative impact on climate change than we have experienced so far,” said the model.
The sale of the book “The Remains of the Earth: Ending Climate Crisis” is done through the Erik Akoa Initiative, the foundation created by Eric Akoa, aimed at creating green earth. The model intends to use the proceeds from the sale to finance his reforestation project. The project plans to plant one million trees in six countries around the world: Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda, Madagascar, the Cameroon and Ghana. “It is important to note that each sale of this book is equivalent to two trees planted,” the environmental activist said.
It is not the first time Garland expresses his ecological concerns. In 2019, the 28-year-old model represented Cameroon in the Sustainable Economies conference in Cameroon. The Cameroon candidate donated some funds in the annual international conference to fight climate change, and to raise awareness of ecology and environmental protection.
