Schools Closed as Extreme Heat Threatens

The Guardian reports on South Sudan's proactive measures, closing schools in anticipation of a scorching 45°C heatwave. This alarming development underscores the escalating threat of extreme heat events driven by climate change, posing grave risks to public health, infrastructure, and livelihoods. The closure of schools in south Sudan serves as a stark reminder of the immediate need for comprehensive adaptation strategies to safeguard vulnerable communities against the intensifying impacts of climate change. Our collective action is important in addressing the growing climate crisis and ensuring the safety and well-being of all individuals, particularly those on the front lines of climate-related disasters. Let's us amplify the voice of the voiceless people in south Sudan and demand for immediate response.

              Imaging the schools could get equipped with solar panels on the rooftops and walls, that could run the air-conditioning, even being off grid
