CLIMATE CHANGE: is an African problem. It is my problem too.

As part of the Paideia Project’s ongoing efforts to address the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have also turned our attention to another pressing issue: climate change. In this video presentation, Mwenya shares a personal story that highlights the urgency and complexity of the climate crisis in Africa. As a continent that is both disproportionately impacted by climate change and largely excluded from discussions around global solutions, Africa faces a unique set of challenges and opportunities in this fight.

Mwenya emphasizes the need for inclusivity and collaboration in addressing the climate crisis, recognizing that one-size-fits-all solutions will not work for a continent with such diverse experiences and needs. She encourages individuals to take small actions in their own lives to care for the environment and contribute to a better future for all. By working together and recognizing the interconnectedness of our planet and its inhabitants, we can create a more just and sustainable world for generations to come.

This inspiring song is by my dear friend and fellow climate activist. He generously gave me permission to feature it in our campaign. Take a moment to listen and be moved by the powerful message it conveys.

The Paideia Project is a climate action club committed to creating an interactive curriculum with climate education components. To further this goal, the club uses recycled materials to make engaging and creative tools that teachers and students can use both in and out of the classroom. These efforts aim to inform young people about the urgent nature crisis affecting our planet and inspire them to take action. By providing interactive material, we hope to encourage creativity and innovation while emphasizing the importance of recycling and sustainable living practices. Additionally, the material can be used to make personal tools, empowering students to take ownership of their environmental impact and become active participants in building a more sustainable future.
