Support Our Community Climate Literacy Initiatives in Africa

Despite contributing only 3 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, Africa is bearing the brunt of the devastating effects of climate change.

The continent’s communities face unprecedented challenges, such as prolonged droughts that lead to crop failures, unpredictable weather patterns that disrupt fishing and farming seasons, and rising sea levels that threaten coastal communities with displacement.

At Zuriplanet, we firmly believe in the transformative power of knowledge and education. Our Community Climate Literacy Initiatives empower African communities with the information and skills they need to survive and thrive in the face of climate change.

By fostering climate literacy, we can help communities make informed decisions, adopt sustainable practices, and build resilience against climate-related challenges.

Why Your Support Matters:

Empower Communities: Your donation will directly fund the development and distribution of educational resources, organising workshops in African communities, and training locals and their leaders in climate literacy using ZuriPlanet’s globally accredited Carbon Literacy for Africa course. This course, recognised and supported by the Carbon Literacy Project, United Kingdom, offers communities the best climate training recognised worldwide and accredited by the United Nations.

Build Resilience: By enhancing climate literacy, we enable communities to implement effective adaptation strategies, reducing their vulnerability to climate impacts.

Certify Carbon Literate Communities: After the training, communities become certified Carbon Literate and are awarded certificates of completion by the Carbon Literacy Project.

This certification is a crucial achievement for community groups, enabling them to adapt to climate change and equipping participants with the skills to secure jobs in Africa’s emerging green economy.

These jobs can provide a sustainable income for community members, contributing to poverty alleviation and long-term community resilience.

Real Impact: To give you a clear understanding of the direct impact of your donations, our website features detailed case studies on the different community groups trained in Carbon Literacy through our programs. These case studies vividly demonstrate the tangible benefits and positive changes brought about by our initiatives, underscoring how your support directly contributes to building climate resilience in African communities.
