He was selected for the conference after his speech in a programme conducted by UNICEF in Kathmandu.

After being selected, he has been collecting information about the impact of climate change in the children of Nepal. The teen informed, “I have been collecting information through internet, experts and colleagues of various clubs.” He emphasised that carbon producing countries should provide compensation to the countries like Nepal. He will be one among the 40 children participants from around the world at the conference. Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal would be attending the conference too. Meanwhile, Sagar lamented that he had not got any assistance from the government yet. “It would be easier if I could join the government team to the conference.” He has also urged children throughout the country to send him suggestions regarding climate change if they have any.
The conference is scheduled from November 28 to December 5 in Copenhagen of Denmark.
