I come from an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean famous for its beautiful beaches and the 1.2 million inhabitants from various parts of the world. Mauritius, my country, forms part of the Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which have serious vulnerabilities due to the effects of climate change. I was blessed to live close to nature all my life. It has allowed me to develop a deep connection to my local environment and the planet, for that matter.
