We are in a planetary crisis!
These issues affect everyone – but they are already disproportionately
effecting those who are poor and vulnerable. We want to hold leaders and big industries accountable and call for systemic change to simultaneously address environmental and social issues - for they are one and the same.
We are the African Climate Alliance, a youth-led group advocating for climate, ecological and social justice.
We believe in a future defined by environmental and social justice. To achieve this we aim to deliver dynamic, Afrocentric environmental education and action, while creating a safe and inclusive space for South African youth.
Unite to campaign for climate, ecological and social justice
Make climate action creative & fun
Encourage inclusive, intercultural collaboration around socio-environmental challenges
Advocate for and deliver climate change education that adequately prepares young people for the realities of climate breakdown
Promote an intersectional climate movement that aims to elevate voices of black, brown, indigenous, working-class and marginalized groups
It all started with just two weeks and a few committed individuals, who co-organized the first big climate protest in Cape Town in March 2019. From there the grassroots group developed into what the African Climate Alliance is today. The group currently comprises of a youth group, two volunteer co-ordinators and group of adult supporting non-profit organisations and active citizens. The group also has allies in over 8 different African countries outside of South Africa.
