Holiday cheer for a ‘Greener Planet’


By Patricia Nanteza 

This Christmas, as we gather with loved ones, let us remember the urgent need to protect our planet and secure a sustainable future for generations to come. We are reminded that true strength lies in our collective actions and the power of unity. Our collective voice for climate justice has never been more important, and we must continue to raise it higher.

Together, in 2023, we have created lasting impact, whether it was advocating for clean and low carbon energy solutions, rooting for GMO foods or demanding bold policy changes. Our tireless efforts have kindled hope and inspired real change.

As this year draws to an end, let us not rest on our laurels. Instead, let us use this time to rejuvenate our spirits, expand our knowledge, and strengthen our networks. Let’s enter the upcoming year with renewed energy, fresh ideas, and an unshakable determination to build a greener and more sustainable world.

We express our deepest gratitude to all our supporters, volunteers, and donors who have stood by us, supporting and owning our cause and amplifying our message. Thank you for being the driving force behind our success and for elevating climate action to the forefront of public consciousness.

Lastly, we wish you all a peaceful and joyous holiday season. The birth of the savior should rekindle a hope in us that we can reduce emissions and save our planet. Together, we can and will make a difference.

As you plan big and delicious Christmas lunches and dinners, make a conscious decision to reduce the amount of charcoal you’ll use and instead use more LPG. This will save a tree somewhere from being cut to fuel our cooking needs.

Let us step into the new year with renewed determination and an unwavering passion for a greener and more sustainable world.

With warmest wishes and a heartfelt thank you,

Nanteza is Director for WePlanet Africa, a grassroots organisation committed to tackling climate change and promoting sustainable energy solutions across the African continent.
