In Cameroon, Madiba & Nature, a local NGO, transforms plastic waste into bottle boats
Madiba & Nature, defines itself as an NGO of Cameroonian student researchers who define themselves as a non-profit organization and work to promote the circular economy in order to ensure the conservation of nature and its biodiversity.
The NGO was created by Essome Ismael, a young Cameroonian, to fight against the pollution of plastic waste in aquatic, marine and urban environment in Cameroon. This should allow for better adaptation to climate change on the continent.
The vision of the NGO is to reach an Africa where “the circular economy contributes to the creation of jobs, protection of nature through recycling and recovery of plastic waste, development of renewable energy, management of aquatic landscapes, urban areas and protected areas “.
Madiba & Nature educates people about the preservation of the environment and wants to help change their mentalities and bad habits regarding the management of plastic waste that degrade sensitive ecosystems.
