Global Mission With a Local Vision

In a recent article for the European Climate Change review, Stuart Taylor, our UK country director, discussed the potential impact of local environmental efforts in Africa on the fight against climate change. Building on this topic, we want to explore with you the importance of our local work in face of global warming and climate change.

Narrowing down on our operations in this post, Stuart explains that the essence of his article is tackling a tendency with some individuals and organizations to prefer taking climate action in the U.K. instead of Africa. While taking action against climate change is crucial everywhere, the continent of Africa presents unique opportunities.
At Justdiggit, we have a global mission as we strive to cool down the planet. With such a planetary vision, we fall in line with countless other organizations like We Don’t Have Time, and many others beyond this platform that recognize global warming as a major threat. However, our approach is deeply rooted in local, personal impact. We directly witness the potential of working in Africa.
A livable planet is impossible without functioning ecosystems and balanced biodiversity. The impact we make is ultimately achieved through the collective efforts of countless individuals in villages and communities throughout countries like Kenya and Tanzania. We provide these communities with jobs, financial stability, educational opportunities, and a healthier environment. This local, personal impact is happening within the broader context of global warming. 
The dynamic relationship between local and global impact is fascinating, far-reaching, and complex. The potential that lies in restoring Africa is becoming increasingly apparent and recognized. In articles and posts to follow on this platform we will dive deeper into different aspect of our work to illustrate not only the impact we make, but also the different considerations that go into our work at Justdiggit.
