Protect Our Future Project

With the Support from Global Green Grants Fund (GGF), The Media Awareness and Justice Initiative carried out the training of Environmental Monitors on how to use independent Media platforms and mobile devices in the collection and factual presentation of environmental data for non violent advocacy and stakeholder interaction. The project was aimed to acheive the following objectives 

  • To increase awareness on the impacts of oil pollution on the environment, and livelihoods of rural people.
  • Develop a community based environmental monitoring network that will provide oil incident updates and transfer them to key regulatory agencies and bodies for prompt response.
  • To empower the target communities to capture their own independent oil spill evidence through the use of low cost mobile technologies.
  • To use radio and social media platforms as tools for public discussions, awareness and sensitization on climate change and for the promotion of renewable energy
