Africa’s First Online Green Network Launched In Cape Town

Green Africa Directory, the first online pan-African sustainability directory and network, was officially launched this week in Cape Town, South Africa. This green networking 'hub', which is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years, already showcases over 800 environmental and sustainability-focused organisations from across Africa. The website also offers users access to comprehensive listings for green events, green jobs and tenders, green specials and competitions.

In the context of Africa's predicted population growth and urbanisation, vulnerability to climate change and natural disasters, wealth of biodiversity and natural resources, expanding infrastructure and growth in ICTs – the Green Africa Directory launch is timely as it aims to contribute towards building a resilient and sustainable future for Africa. The network is well placed to provide a central role in promoting and mainstreaming green options and development alternatives throughout Africa.

Green Africa Directory provides an easily accessible and searchable online directory that encompasses a range of categories - from biodiversity, climate change and community networks - to energy, green building and design, certification and eco labels, education and travel and tourism. It goes beyond being a traditional business directory by including links to projects, campaigns, government departments, academic institutes, NGOs, corporate businesses and green products – and is integrated with social media.

Green Africa Directory aims to mainstream sustainability across all sectors in Africa and to inspire action, raise awareness, facilitate networking and enhance collaboration. The organisation's founder, Kate Berrisford, explains that there are a growing number of inspirational environmental and sustainability initiatives in Africa "that have the potential to be mainstreamed, scaled-up and replicated. The Green Africa Directory aims to provide a platform for all organisations involved in green initiatives to connect, collaborate and profile themselves through a central online 'green hub' - towards creating a more sustainable future for Africa."
