Greenpeace Africa has launched VUMA. EARTH – an online campaign platform for ordinary citizens to run environmental petitions.
The platform seeks to grow an environmental movement and give a voice to millions of Africans across the continent. The tool provides a space for Africans to start campaigns that address environmental issues affecting their local communities.
“It is important for African people to stand up against the abuse of the environment because it is our heritage at stake. VUMA.EARTH is a tool to help facilitate this,” said Angelo C Louw, Greenpeace Africa Digital Mobilisation Officer.
