Wow! Thank you for joining the Africa Climate Action Initiative launch on May 7th!
Over 100 viewers tuned in from Canada, Africa and around the world & over 400 views on YouTube! The webcast of the ACAI launch was truly a Canada Africa Partnership (and so much more). Click below to watch the recording.
We heard from no less than 10 excellent and thoughtful speakers. We were graced with stories of the connectedness of humanity and an energetic performance with a message of peace by the one and only Emmanuel Jal. Our host Allie kept us moving with grace.
Thanks to generous donors who pledged $500 in matching funds, we raised over $1,000 during the event for grassroots climate action in Africa!
Thanks to our speakers, contributors, volunteers, donors, viewers, partners, and all community members who made this event such a great success. The Africa Climate Action Initiative is born!!
Together, we stand for climate action and resilience. Together, we imagine a healthy and regenerative Africa and future! Join us online:

The Africa Climate Action Initiative
The ACAI seeks to promote and accelerate climate change adaptation and mitigation activities that support human security and wellbeing in Africa. Our aims are to:
(1) Promote African projects that support African communities to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
(2) Leverage funding to support the implementation and scale-up of climate-smart projects in Africa.
(3) Support African partners with developing and monitoring climate-smart projects.
(4) Connect African partners to implementing partners and to other organizations working on similar projects in order to foster knowledge-sharing and capacity-building on climate-related issues.
(5) Raise awareness through outreach, events and strategic initiatives, and mobilize Canadians to support climate action in Africa.
Together, we stand for climate action and resilience. Together, we imagine a healthy and regenerative Africa and future!
