#AfricansRising for Climate Action & Justice

Workshop (in English) organised by Bonnections in partnership with the AfricansRising for Justice, Peace & Dignity" movement and local Africa Diaspora Community.

Workshop participants will meet and connect with African climate activists and changemakers and learn about Africa born initiatives, climate protection & ICT solutions and the Kilimanjaro Declaration.

We will highlight innovative community and women-led sustainable development projects such as the Nigerian social startup Susty Vibes, the South African impact entreprise Wonderbag, and Cologne-based EDDA e.V. which provides ICT training for teachers in Uganda, Kenya and DRC.

Bonnections is a local grassroots initiative that aims to bring new and old Bonners together and foster an intercultural dialogue, critical awareness and social change for addressing global issues. During the COP23, Bonnections will be organising a series of #Uniting4Climate outreach events with local and international partners.
