9 out of 10 people breathe polluted air and we want to change that equation with your help!

From now, through to #WorldEnvironmentDay on June 5, the United Nations is calling on everyone to join the Mask Challenge.

Face masks do little to protect people from air pollution, but they are a great symbol of how much we want to breathe clean air. The World Environment Day campaign invites everyone to help #BeatAirPollution.

The Training of Female Community Ecoguards Boosts Protection of Liberia’s National Parks

A fantastic article on the importance of women’s involvement in conservation work, from one of our partners, West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change Program.

All over the world, women are excelling in roles that were previously reserved for men. Living proof of this paradigm shift can be found in Liberia, where more and more women are training to be Community Ecoguards, a position that has since been perceived as male-dominated at Grebo-Krahn National Pa...

African wildlife species move in and out of protected areas, such as national parks and reserves, with some migratory species, even traversing vast rangelands along ancient wildlife corridors. Protected areas alone cannot support ecologically critical species and ecosystems. This means it's important to work with communities to protect the lands and wildlife around them, partner with wildlife management authorities to better manage privately-owned conservation areas where wildlife roams. https://bit.ly/2t3UjpG

“#Education and #GenderEquality go hand in hand. Education cuts across all the #SDGs, like No Poverty, Decent work and economic growth, and Gender Equality. When we say: “education for all”, this also includes the other gender which is often left out, namely the girls”.

Yina, is the Founder of @GoGirlsICT - An organisation founded BY and working FOR young people in #SouthSudan, improving the situation for young women and mothers in their country!

💪She's also one of the volunteers collecting #MYWorld votes and helping raise #SDG awareness among South Sudanese youth.

“How can we move forward?” Sisipho Thomas asks his listeners.

Sisipho is a youth reporter in Alice in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, who, along with the rest of the Breaking New Ground team, is on a mission to fight HIV stigma, one radio broadcast at a time.

Fear and judgment often lead community members, family, and even spouses to reject a loved one because of their HIV positive status. “People didn’t want to hug me or even shake my hand,” explains one of Sisipho’s interviewees. By opening up dialogue with local youth, community members, clinic workers, and HIV positive individuals, Sisipho and his team are breaking the silence that has shrouded the issue for many years.

The fear of being “outed” as HIV positive, shamed by nurses, or having to face a potential positive diagnosis keeps many youth away from clinics where they could get access to critical information and health services. Vuyelwa Nogqala, a nurse working in the area, believes that radio, with its powerful reach in the community and its ability to create a space for constructive dialogue, could play a key role in changing things for the better.
