The Vision

The vision is of a future where the natural environment and culture are protected. Sustainable consumption is drawn from heritage, with the reliance on nature’s provisions of food, air, trees, soil, and water, as a central way of life. The vision is to reciprocate nature’s offerings by utilising resources sustainably, advocating for practices like organic farming and traditional medicine. It aspires to see the government enact laws to  safeguard natural resources, while protecting seeds and natural medicines from disappearing. This vision underscores the government’s responsibility in addressing various issues, including biodiversity, water, energy, and agriculture, through legislation to achieve sustainability and conservation goals.

And how do we get there?

2023 Campaign

A generational knowledge gap threatens local seeds and food sustainability in Kilimanjaro. Envirocare’s campaign involved mapping local seeds and foods, hosting workshops on the value of local food systems and dialogues, including on the links between traditional farming and effective climate change mitigation. Elders shared their knowledge and showcased locally grown organic seeds, plants, herbs and roots, educating youth on their importance for health and the environment, with practical demonstrations of planting and consumption.

This is part of the Mistra Sustainable Consumption research program in collaboration with Green Action Week.
