CBSE English Syllabus Honors Licypriya Kangujam as 'Child Hero' for Global Activism

Lakhipuronline Digital Desk:
In a remarkable recognition of her impactful activism, Licypriya Kangujam, the dynamic young leader, has been designated a 'Child Hero' in the CBSE English syllabus. Expressing immense joy on discovering her story featured in the textbook, Licypriya shared her gratitude on X (formerly Twitter), stating, "Absolutely an honour to see my story in the school English textbook of CBSE. No words!"

From humble beginnings to standing outside the Indian Parliament house, capturing the attention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and subsequently inspiring a climate change law in India, Licypriya's journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. The President of East Timor and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Dr Jose Ramos Horta, even launched the 'Licypriya Foundation' in her name on May 21, 2022.

Undeterred by criticism for her young age, Licypriya firmly believes in the power of children to lead change. Now a global symbol for the youth climate movement, she has garnered widespread support and is poised to make a tangible impact.

Inspired by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, Licypriya began advocating against climate change at the age of six. Disheartened by the lack of action from leaders, she embarked on a mission to save the future. Despite being just 12 years old, Licypriya has emerged as a leading voice for climate change, drawing large crowds at protests and conferences.

Her 'Child Movement' aims to raise awareness about climate change and natural disasters, representing not only the millions affected by the crisis but also the voiceless animals on our planet. Starting as a solo advocate in July 2018, Licypriya now enjoys widespread support globally.

At the 2019 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25), she called out world leaders for denying the threat of climate change, urging them to take decisive action. Additionally, Licypriya has been vocal about the unrest in Manipur, using her social media platforms to address the issue and brief central and world leaders, including the Pope, advocating for an end to violence in the state.
