• SOUTH AFRICA: NO to the Duynefontein Nuclear Plant
    The approval for a 4,000-megawatt facility at Duynefontein, adjacent to the Koeberg Nuclear Power Station, comes at a time when South Africa can neither afford, nor does it need a new nuclear power station. The South African fiscus cannot afford any new nuclear build, the Finance Minister said so on 25 October 2016. If we invest in nuclear, we'll have less money for water and education - needed in the province and the rest of the country. Nuclear is not the cheap, safe and affordable option it is often presented as. Instead it is costly, dangerous and nuclear accidents are devastating: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_and_radiation_accidents_and_incidents With high unemployment rate in SA, we should be investing in renewable energy as it will be available much quicker than nuclear and it creates more jobs - and is far less dangerous. Nuclear creates fewer jobs than renewable energy generation. In terms of the nuclear jobs potential in SA, the Russian state-owned nuclear company Rosatom stated in mid-2013 that 15,000 new jobs would be created directly by the procurement. However, in March of this year, that number dropped significantly, to only 5,760. The whole Nuclear Deal is shrouded in secrecy. What is worse is that as usual the SA government continues to make key energy decisions in secret -- which will have a negative impact on current and future generations in South Africa -- and without any input from the people. Please sign - to Say NO to The New Nuclear Power Plant plans and urge the government to invest in sustainable renewable energy.

    Par ce que ils exploitent sans tenir compte des méthodes d'exploitation durable. ils ne reboisent pas, ils coupent les espèces sans tenir compte de leur valeur écologique, économique, culturelle, sociale et ou alimentaire. ils échappent aux impôts et la population locale ne trouve pas profit de cette exploitation, ça crée également des conflits

    It is necessary that towards the Sustainable Development goals, we focus on sustaining our environment. Proper waste management is key in curbing pollution and ensuring sustainable environments for urban and rural development. Plastic bags and plastic products have become a menace in Kenya with cities like Nairobi experiencing floods due to blocked drainage by plastics. The pollution from burning of these products have further increased the effects of greenhouse gases. Banning use of non bio-degradable plastics is a necesaary step towards environmental sustainability.

    A huge amount of in- and exports across the countries are done by trucks. These trucks cause air pollution, noise and worsen street conditions. Nowadays everyday products are ordered on the internet from all over the world and far distances of transportation is not a big deal anymore . An investment in better infrastructure can ensure cleaner air, and renew and expend the rail links. When more people will go by train rail ticket are easier to afford and it will decrease the need of a car. Unfortunately the costly car is still a must for more rural areas. I am a passionate biker and hate to suffocate on the exhaust fumes of vast trucks.

  • NIGER: Non aux dechets plastics
    Car avec des usines et les unités de recyclage de déchets plastics on contribuera à préserver l'agriculture familiale dans nos pays Sahéliens car vous n'êtes pas sans savoir que les déchets sont nocifs et mettent 100 à 150 ans avant de se transformer une fois enfouis dans le sous sol le seul lieu où la majorité de nos populations tirent leur alimentation pour la survie quotidienne à moyen et long terme.

  • CAMEROON: Trier les déchets
    Trier ses déchets permet de protéger l'environnement car beaucoup de déchets se dégradent difficilement et s'ils contient des composants chimiques, ces derniers polluent les sols et l'eau. Aussi, il est possible de recycler ces déchets et de les transformer en matière première économisant nos ressources naturelles à condition de les trier au préalable pour que certains déchets ne souille pas d'autres rendant le recyclage plus complexe.
