Wayne J is all about the environment
Teenage reggae sensation Wayne J is very serious about his role as the youth ambassador for the Alligator Head Foundation.
The 14-year-old entertainer recently represented Jamaica at the United Nations COP23 Climate Change Conference which was held from November 6 to 17 in Bonn, Germany.
The singjay, who is a second form student at Hydel High School, participated in various events at the conference.
"This was a great opportunity for me; I was the youngest person representing a delegation at the conference. I am happy I got an opportunity to talk about the importance of protecting our marine environment," he said. "I also performed some of the songs that I've recorded to promote the protection of the environment such as Plastic Bottles and Golden Country."
The young entertainer said that among the topics discussed at the conference were ocean protection and climate change, and how different places in the world are moving towards a safer environment.
He also added, "I am pleased that I was chosen to represent Jamaica at the conference, it was a wonderful experience; everyone was very warm and receptive. This year I have also done a 700km walk around the island, encouraging persons to desist from plastic pollution and so far, persons are listening."
The Alligator Head Foundation is an environmental organisation created by Swiss philanthropist Archduchess Francesca von Habsburg-Lothringen to conserve Jamaica's coastal and marine resources. The foundation is based in Portland, Jamaica.
In addition to working on a few projects for the foundation, Wayne J is currently promoting two new singles, Copy Teka and Murderer.
He is also working on several new projects slated to be released in 2018.
