Desmond Tutu's Birthday Wish At The Beach

Desmond Tutu’s Birthday Wish At The Beach

In 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Lewis Pugh took the evidence of witnesses from across Africa on the effects of climate change at the Pan-African Climate and Poverty Hearings. Their findings were presented to the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference. And the two continue to cross paths.

Today is Archbishop Tutu’s 82nd birthday. “His birthday wish is exemplary of the man who he is,” explains Pugh.

He has asked his friends to come down to Milnerton Beach in Cape Town and help him clean it up. His birthday present to himself is a present to others. Priceless.”
