To mark the Earth Day, on 22 April 2021, we ran a Facebook Live discussion to raise awareness about climate change in Azerbaijan. We organised this jointly with the British Embassy and the US Embassy in Azerbaijan.
The speakers talked about why is it important for us to tackle climate change through government action, green energy, water treatment and eco tourism, as well as responding to the questions from the live FaceBook audience.
