Earth Day 2017’s Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy

Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.

Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.

This Earth Day, gather with your community for an Environmental & Climate Literacy Teach-In or another project focused on education. We are launching Earth Day and Teach-In toolkits that will lay out the steps for holding a successful event. Register your event with us and we will support you with promotion and advice.

From South Africa's Beauty Without Cruelty


In light of the latest news that South Africa’s highest court has rejected a bid by the government to keep a ban on domestic trade in rhino horn, and this means rhino horns may be traded locally by those with the required permits. 1054 rhinos were killed by poachers in South Africa in 2016, the timing for the next Voices for African Wildlife outeach is fortuitous.

On the 22nd of April 2017, Voices for African Wildfe, a BWC affiliate, will hold an event called "GO GREEN - SAVE ALL EARTH'S CREATURES". This event will be on World Earth Day and this year's theme is "Environmental and Climate Literacy". Our event will involve activities like clean up litter, planting veggies, environmental and animal presentations etc. We are also going to plant spekboom plants on that day which put oxygen back into the atmosphere, also edible for humans and animals, but their main purpose is to re-oygenate the planet and in the Eastern Cape huge overseas companies are getting environment credits by planting thousands of acres of it, indigenous and need very little water too and most importantly, we are going to celebrate Better Foundation International School's pledge to Go Green!
Beauty without Cruelty is so proud to be a part of this effort to enthuse our young people.
