Harnessing the Power of Local Communities and Youth for Climate Action in Africa

July 27, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EAT

We are delighted to invite you to our webinar that aims to shed light on the vital role local communities, including young people are playing in shaping climate action for health across the African continent.

Climate change is a health crisis – it poses one of the most significant threats to global health, and urgent collective action is needed to tackle the challenge. To find solutions, we must involve diverse perspectives, and elevate some of the voices that are often ignored but are worst affected by impacts of climate change in Africa.

During the webinar, we will delve into the experiences, initiatives, and inputs of communities and youth across Africa. Our aim is to highlight the immense potential they hold in driving positive change and fostering sustainable solutions. By embracing a community-level approach, we can enhance African innovation, empower local actors to spur community-led mitigation and adaptation measures, and build a resilient future for our continent.

The event will feature esteemed speakers and panelists from diverse backgrounds, including community leaders, climate activists, journalists, youth representatives, funders, and other experts in the field. They will share their insights, experiences, and success stories, inspiring us all to join forces and contribute to collective efforts to tackle health impacts of climate change in Africa.
