Honouring Mandela’s Legacy: Working Together to Address Climate Change and Food Insecurity

“The right to a healthy environment is a crucial human right because it directly impacts our quality of life. Often, it is the most vulnerable that suffers most in the face of environmental abuse.”  ~ Nelson Mandela Nelson Mandela would have turned 105 on July 18th, 2023. The theme for this year’s event is ‘Climate, Food and Solidarity’, which is most opportune in a time of exacerbating climate crisis and food scarcity. It is more important now than ever that we address climate change, persisting and rising levels of poverty, and inequality in the manner that Mandela represents - by working together.  As Mandela once said, “I dream of vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wilderness. We must never forget that it is our duty to protect this environment.” The realities of climate change are becoming more and more evident as global weather patterns show increased intensity and frequency of extreme climate events. For the sake of generations to come, we must honour Mandela’s legacy and take a stand against the climate crisis and food insecurity.

          This is a great legacy that should be passed on to the generations. The leaders today must work towards such sustainable development goals especially in the Africa continent where climate change effects are adverse.
