Sink our CO2

Solutions to climate change do not only come from research centers and laboratories but also through innovation by the people most affected.

ACT FOR AFRICA’S FORESTS

Sink Our CO2 is the African Climate Reality Project campaign aimed at creating awareness around forest management, restoration, and protection as carbon sinks, and inspiring people to plant and protect trees.

Forests act as the world’s lungs, playing a massive role in absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. More importantly, they currently absorb and store more carbon than they release, making them extremely important carbon sinks.

But, they are in danger – which means we are too.

And so it’s up to us to speak for the trees, and ensure that their future – and ours – is protected from the climate crisis.

take action

Join us in taking action for Africa’s forests and our future! We encourage you to lead on climate and add your voice to the call to restore and protect Africa’s forests.

African Climate Reality Project is aware of the role we all have to play in curbing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), and so for the time being we strongly encourage climate actions you can take solely over social media from your home.

We need to act for Africa’s forests. Use our free Digital Action Toolkit to spread the word!

Forest factsheets

Take a look at the new Sink Our CO2 Factsheets that we made just for you! These are free to download, packed with information and graphics, and so easy to share as a way of raising awareness about our forests – and what we can do to protect them.
