Concrete solutions for a clean future
WESSA supports the #FUTUREISCLEAN campaign and innovative and bold Solar Impose project, which is very well aligned with our organisation’s objective of promoting active public participation in caring for the Earth. We commend the project for its unprecedented quest to complete a global circumnavigation in a plane that does not use fossil fuel, and believe that its actions will make a strong statement at the upcoming COP meeting. This project truly inspires us all to embrace innovative ways of using renewable energy and reducing our dependency on fossil fuels. Catherine Ritchie, Communications & Marketing Manager at WESSA
WESSA (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) is a dynamic South African environmental NGO with a mission to implement high impact environmental and conservation projects that promote public participation in caring for the Earth. WESSA has a remarkable history of almost 90 years and a proud track record of enabling individuals and organisations to use natural resources sustainably and effectively. We are driven by the critical focus areas of our work which include the international eco-labels of Eco-Schools and Blue Flag, environmental training, sustainable energy, and life-supporting eco-systems such as water and biodiversity.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
