We build regional networks of change makers who are committed and are courageous enough to pursue their ideas of bringing positive change to Africa and making the dream of a green economy a reality. Through our networks we create a platform for change makers to incubate their ideas, get peer support and share experiences.
We help organize and activate local economies by supporting new economy innovations that result in community upliftment and in promoting models of the economy that promote human wellbeing and environmental sustainability.
This incubation program targets marginalized communities, women and unemployed youth by empowering them to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the green economy in their communities. The nature of the interventions will vary depending on the area of operations, at present the focus is on building sustainable agribusiness, fighting energy poverty and promoting access to sustainable water supplies for rural communities. We are also creating an online platform to showcase new economy innovations that promote local economies, equity and social justice.
