2017 was an excellent year for the African Climate Reality Project:
- Our numbers have grown to 603 Climate Leaders
- We are represented in 26 countries in Africa
- We have reached over 150 000 Facebook followers.
More importantly, the work we have achieved as a collective is nothing short of remarkable! While we only had 301 of Acts of Leadership logged during 2017, we know that you are doing much more than you are reporting. I am inspired by our climate leaders throughout Africa.
The profiles of our Climate Leaders tell the stories of people committed to looking after the earth and people. Our climate leaders are working with youth, supporting their governments, training media and businesses, helping implement the Paris Agreement in each country and caring for the environment. Each one of these actions mobilises Africans in the fight against climate change.
We are enormously grateful to the three regional leaders that supported Climate Leaders in East Africa (Timothy Mugerwa), West Africa (David Michael Terungwa) and South-Central Africa (Ivy Chipasha).
