“Together for a Better World”, the international work camp organised by Betterword Cameroon from 1-21 August, will deal with issues related to the rehabilitation of spiritual forests which remain the only hot spots for conservation and can be used for protection of Congo basin (second lung of the world).
It will feature Permaculture the African Way Workshops, teaching people about the environment. Joshua Konkankoh, Founder of Better World Cameroon, said, “Protecting the environment is everyone’s responsibility, and starts with understanding the issues. The basics include reducing how much energy and materials you use, reusing what you can and recycling the rest.
There’s a lot more about that to learn from our indigenous knowledge systems! A few examples include conserving water and energy, minimizing greenhouse gases through improved local cook stoves, re-using solid waste of compost toilets, and how to deal with the ever present pesticide risks in our environment. In return, we share information and publicly recognize our partners.We cannot protect the environment on our own, we are looking to work with businesses, non-profit organizations, and state and local governments through partnerships.
You all are invited to attend our youth camps every summer 1st to 21 August as student, researcher or sustainability practitioner.
