CorpsAfrica Green is a new initiative that will position CorpsAfrica Volunteers as part of the solution for environmental issues in Africa and beyond. The low–cost initiative centers on environment-related training, so that Volunteers will recognize and approach issues related to and caused by climate change in their CorpsAfrica sites from a scientific lens.
By living in rural communities, Volunteers can serve as a resource to the larger climate action community; they will liaise with Development Partners to test out environmental innovations and report critical information on how their local communities are affected by and adapting to climate change.
To promote environmental protection, conservation and sustainability in rural African communities through agroforestry, renewable energy, waste management and mitigation of the effects of climate change.
To build the capacity of both the Volunteers and the communities they serve, empowering them to address their own environmental challenges. To contribute to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals related to environmental sustainability (SDG 2, 3, 7, 11, 12, 13, 15) and poverty reduction (SDG 1 and 8).
