Road to a 100 Million Climate Soldiers in Africa

Greetings AWB Friends & Family!

I hope you are having a good week, and by extension, a good year so far – I’m constantly amazed by how quick 2022 is racing. 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to a fantastic new project that we are all particularly proud of!

We are training 100 MILLION CLIMATE CHANGE SOLDIERS to help ensure that African voices are included in the fight against the world’s biggest threat! 

Climate change is THE most important issue of our time, with huge impacts on natural resources, ecosystems, economies, security, and all of the other passions and causes that we care about… Because of course without a planet, there is no place to play social progression out on.

The continent itself is one of the most vulnerable territories as the climate changes around us – and yet – African voices are neither represented nor heard where key decisions are being made.

This is, as you can probably imagine, a hugely ambitious project, and we are extremely grateful to, who are truly practicing what they preach by sponsoring the initial pilot scheme. Going forward, there will be further sponsorship opportunities related to the project, so please let us know if this is something you would be interested in being affiliated with.

Overall, AWB’s ‘Road to 100 Million Climate Change Soldiers’ has been specifically designed to educate our own people on the dangers of the changes to our everyday lives that are coming. But even more than that, we know that Africa represents a massive, young, and passionate community, and we want to mobilise that energy so that the continent can become THE biggest advocate for climate solutions on the planet!

Over the coming weeks, we will be unveiling numerous new activities in this area, beginning with an open photo essay challenge in collaboration with The Africa Soft Power Project, inviting Africans to share their views – and concerns – on the climate changes currently taking place in our world… please stay tuned to AWB communications for further details, and in the meantime, if this is a subject you feel particularly strongly about (we suspect it is), then please share your views and ideas with us, to help us shape the most effective programme possible.

Warm regards as always,

Nkiru Balonwu,

Founder & Co-Chair, AWB
