Green Times is a social-environmental and educational news platform responding to the biggest story of the 21st century – climate change.
Climate change is also be the biggest health threat of this century. So it’s crucial to be informed on a day-to-day basis of the unfolding crisis and what you can do about it.
Yet the main news media still neglect this important news to the detriment of all of us and our children. Change is facilitated through information. Lack of awareness is now dangerous to our survival.
Worldwide there is an escalating need for the news media to inform the public about climate and environmental solutions and constructive responses, yet particularly in the developing world this is not happening. Africa is simultaneously the most vulnerable continent to climate change and the most ignorant too.
For the first 5 years our work was privately funded by the Editor, with some corporate and industry support. However, this was not a sustainable model. It is now up to our community of readers to ensure we can keep this up and inspire a culture of responsibility and accountability towards the Earth.
How you can help
Support by donating a monthly, or once off, amount via EFT. This way we aim to, in time, cover our running costs and train and appoint eco journalists to cover stories across South Africa. Currently we are working without any sponsorship at all, so this is a volunteer platform dedicated to serving the greater good and a sustainable future.
