Climate change is REAL & the planet needs saving. With rising temperatures threatening our health and food security, air pollution, the amazon rainforest at risk and a 46% rise in climate-related disasters, there is no time than now to take conscious, intentional steps in addressing the adverse effects of climate change.
Across the African continent, there is a lot of doubt and disbelief about the existence of climate change despite evidence that we face a grunt of the repercussions. Climate action has to be collective action, only together can we combat the challenges of climate change.
The campaign is aimed at uniting the voices of young people, stakeholders and governments across Africa to educate, advocate and take meaningful action towards stemming the harmful effects of climate change. Cleanbuild.Africa’s goal is to use this campaign in making every African digital citizen conscious and actively involved in fighting climate change.
