Reports suggest that around 1/3 of the world’s animal species might become extinct by the middle of the century if human activity continues to release harmful greenhouse gases at the current rate with 1 million species now at risk of extinction due to climate change. Climate change is increasingly becoming a bigger force in putting certain animals on the endangered species list. Both scientists and U.N. reports agree that this loss of biodiversity does not only encourage tragic losses, but also has huge potential ramifications for human life as it puts food, water and resource supplies that humans rely on for survival at great risk. Don't Choose Extinction!

The Sustainable Generation Week is an initiative of Sustainable Solutions for Green Growth focused on promoting environmental sustainability and raising awareness about climate change. The initiative includes a series of events and activities that are designed to engage and educate young people, children, women, people affected by conflicts, and marginalised communities among others about the practical ways to reduce their environmental impact and promote sustainable practices. The events are targeted towards individuals and groups of people who are interested in taking action to protect the planet and promote environmental sustainability.

Sustainable Solutions for Green Growth (SSforGG) is a leading youth-led initiative creating change since 2020 by finding sustainable solutions to climate and sustainability challenges at the grassroot through innovation, technology, policy and advocacy methods. We want to build the resilience of local communities by supporting them via capacity-building. Our methodology is to tap into the power of young people, supporting them to use data-driven analyses and evidence-based research to inform policies and seek urgent action from the government on key climate and sustainability issues. SSGG aims to leverage strategic partnerships to scale its impact, creating more safe and climate-resilient communities in Africa and across world. Send feedback to
