Geraldo Sibinde is passionate about literature and the environment. He is involved environmental problems, he is concern of climate change and the action taken by More Economically Developed Countries (MEDC), and how it can also be implemented in Less Economically Developed Countries (LECD), because they are the MEDC of tomorrow and taking action in LEDC, will help to prevent the use of non recyclable material and avoid the emission of pollutants, by using more sustainable technologies.
