Explore Our Head-Heart-Body Climate Action Online Library where, in the spirit of co-creation of knowledge, along with our own resources, this online library will also serve as a platform to amplify the important work already being done in the space by including resources from other organizations.

Welcome to our online library dedicated to transforming the way we understand and address climate change. As we approach the pivotal year 2030, the urgency to take meaningful action to combat climate change, reduce global emissions, and keep the 1.5-degree Celsius goal alive has never been more apparent.
Our mission is to contribute to a dynamic, action driven climate justice movement =that emphasizes practical solutions and centers on the well-being of people and our planet. This resource offers a fresh approach to climate change education that not only evokes deep emotions and a compelling drive to act but also encourages introspection and thoughtful processing of ideas.

At the core of this transformative learning experience is our HEAD-HEART-BODY model, with a head section which gives you a climate 101, a heart section which gives you tools to process and reflect on the knowledge learn, and a body section which gives you practical guidelines to take action.

Join us on this journey towards #TheAfricaWeWant. Together, we can build the climate justice movement, and strengthen adaptive capacity on the continent.

African Climate Reality Project Advocates for Climate Justice and Equity at COP28 in Dubai

Dubai, Wednesday, 29 November 2023.

As world leaders and decision-makers gather in Dubai for the 28th United Nations Conference (COP28), The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP), calls for ambitious commitments to the equitable phase out of fossil fuels, fair financing, and adaptation to be placed higher on the agenda.

Navigating the climate change – food system crisis for under-resourced communities

World Food Day is celebrated annually on the 16th of October, with one of its primary aims to raise awareness of the inequalities when it comes to access to nutritious food. This is exacerbated in under-resourced communities in Africa where a number of socioeconomic factors are concerned.

Food security is a fundamental human right, and yet, climate change threatens to undermine it, especially in developing countries such as South Africa where climate induced drought, and rising food prices are jeopardising access to food. Food security is defined as the availability, accessibility, and affordability of nutritious food.

Africa Can Rise To The Climate Challenge

Every year, Africa Day gives us the chance to celebrate the diversity and success of our continent and highlight its cultural and economic potential. 

The theme for Africa Day 2023 is “accelerating the development and diffusion of emerging technologies for a green, inclusive and resilient Africa”.

Africa can rise to the climate challenge if it embraces its own potential. The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP) plays a key role in strengthening citizen engagement through awareness and capacity-building programs and training.

Climate Change Curriculum To Be Introduced To South African Schools

The African Climate Reality Project (ACRP), and its host organisation, Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) have created a compelling and powerful programme to address climate literacy at high school level, by empowering learners with the values, and attitudes to become active citizens.

The role of education in addressing the climate crisis has become increasingly important. The Climate Change Curriculum will provide youth with the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about how to adapt to climate change, and lead future discussions calling for climate justice.

Our mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every sector of society.
