African Climate Reality Project
The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP) — a branch of the US-based The Climate Reality Project — was established to support African Climate Reality Leaders in their efforts to combat climate change in Africa, a continent disproportionately affected by this global crisis.
In 2014, Al Gore (former US Vice President and Nobel Laureate) trained hundreds of Africans from across the continent at The Climate Reality Project‘s Leadership Corps training in South Africa. To date, over 650 Africans have attended one of these trainings and now volunteer as Climate Reality Leaders in over thirty countries in Africa.
Hosted by Food & Trees for Africa, ACRP coordinates with Climate Reality Leaders, volunteers, NGOs, CSOs, and government departments to turn the volume up on urgent climate action.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change special report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C tells us that we have until 2030 to stop climate change in its tracks. The time for ambitious climate action is now, so join the African Climate Reality Project and find out how you too can #LeadOnClimate.
