He currently serves as the layout manager and assists in organizing and releasing monthly editions on local and global news.
James joined the ACE Action Fellowship because he believes that climate change is a major issue in modern society. He gained interest when he realized that many people still don’t know the consequences of climate change.

His goal is to make sure that future generations can live on a clean, healthy planet.
