Today is World Environment Day, which is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment.
This year, the United Nations initiative for celebrating and raising awareness for the environment is to create the world’s biggest nature photo album. They are encouraging people to take a photo that captures their favourite spot in nature and upload it with the hashtags #WorldEnvironmentDay and #WithNature. As the album grows, so does the global call for conservation.
Therefore, to celebrate World Environment Day we are going to share with you some of our favourite spots in nature from a few of our different volunteer locations across Africa.
Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town has endless beauty with its mountains and ocean, the view from Signal Hill is certainly one of our favourite spots to watch the sunset.
Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this view? Our Zanzibar volunteers are lucky enough to enjoy this view right from their window!
Greater Kruger Area, South Africa
In the Greater Kruger, South Africa, we assist our partner Eco Children to maintain their vegetable gardens at primary schools, which is definitely one of our favourite nature spots! These Eco Villages help students supplement their normal school meals with fresh and nutritious vegetables working towards the global goal, zero hunger.
Antelope Park, Zimbabwe
One of our favourite things about Africa is definitely the incredible sunrises and sunsets, who wouldn’t love Zimbabwe's fiery skies?!
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Our projects in Zimbabwe and Zambia are both just a stones throw away from one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the mighty Victoria Falls. Our volunteers get to enjoy is awe-inspiring beauty!
Last but not least, Mosh in Tanzania! Our lucky volunteers in Moshi get to immerse themselves in and amongst the beautifull foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro!
These photos show just a small percentage of natures beauty and why we love Africa! This World Environment Day why not step outside, enjoy and reconnect with everything nature has to offer?
