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-focused affinity group which founded after the first #climatestrikecapetown in March 2019 to deliver dynamic, Afrocentric environmental action.
Unite against climate, ecolological and social injustice
Make climate action fun
Encourage creative intercultural collaboration around climate challenges
Advocate for climate adaptation education
Promote a pan-African approach to climate justice
The African Climate Alliance was founded in Cape Town but the youth group (ACAY) has 200 members, of which 30 are from 8 different African countries outside of South Africa. An adult group of supporting non-profit organisations and active citizens (ACAS) provides mentorship to ACAY and assists with mobilisation and education in different communities.
As South African youth, we have been growing increasingly concerned…
