Increasing environmental awareness, stewardship, and collective action amongst individuals, communities, organisations, businesses, and government bodies in Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
“We cannot protect what we do not understand. “
At Greenpop, we believe that awareness is the foundation for environmental stewardship. As they say: Knowledge is power, whether tackling the climate crisis, reversing ecosystem degradation or combatting pollution and unsustainable natural resource use.
Inspiration to get active, not anxious.
Through our environmental awareness projects we collaborate with other outstanding organisations to create positive, educational, and inspiring campaigns and experiences. These varied and wide-ranging projects all aim to contribute towards a greater appreciation for and stewardship of our natural assets.
We have been running environmental awareness events and campaigns since 2012.
