"While the environmental threats facing Africans
are urgent and critical, Africa is in a position to leapfrog dirty
development and become a leader in helping to avert catastrophic
climate change and protect the natural environment. We are here to help
make that happen."
Greenpeace Africa is here! Marking a whole new era for Greenpeace, we opened our first African office yesterday, in Johannesburg. In the coming weeks, we'll be opening two more - one in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the other in Senegal.
Although we've been working in Africa to end environmental destruction and for the right of Africans to a healthy environment since the early 1990s, the launch of Greenpeace Africa is a huge leap forward in our work to challenge some of the most urgent environmental problems facing Africans today - climate change, forest destruction and overfishing.
