Green Job

A “green job”, also called a “green-collar job” is, according to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), “work in agricultural, manufacturing, research and development (R&D), administrative, and service activities that contribute(s) substantially to preserving or restoring environmental quality. Specifically, but not exclusively, this includes jobs that help to protect ecosystems and biodiversity; reduce energy, materials, and water consumption through high efficiency strategies; de-carbonize the economy; and minimize or altogether avoid generation of all forms of waste and pollution.

Africa is the place where investments for green jobs are so needed!!! They would help to combat poverty, climate change, toxic environment, deforestation and ignorance.

As Charcoal remains the most popular cooking energy, cutting trees will remain an important local business.

Information about alternative, sustainable energy (ex: solar cooker) are needed. Communities need to be educated and empowered to become agent of change and enjoy harmony with their environment!!!

Africans are the most suffering populations, victims of climate change consequences. As forests are cut, rivers stop flowing, soil erosion is growing with desertification, rain is missing, water is missing, food is missing… Most of this people are convinced (more or less consciously) by all this matters but ignorance make them powerless to face this reality. Global changes won’t be done by global international decisions. Changes will come from individual habit’s. Local actions will be the most concret and efficient ones

Lack of money, investments, poverty growing, corrupted political environment are the main problem to develop green jobs with confidence, but GWIAN believes that by educating communities about indigenous spices, environment matters, with local actions Africans can bring confidence back in their relation with potential international investor.

Africa’s potential is not about human and mineral resources exploitation!!!

Africa’s potential can really help the world to combat Climate Change!!!

Let’s help them to protect their/our needed environment with green jobs!!!
