Greenpeace is a movement of people passionate about achieving their vision of a greener, healthier planet. By lobbying, campaigning, and educating the public, Greenpeace helps enact real change on a global scale.
Jamma fully supports the Greenpeace mission to promote change that will create a healthier planet for future generations. Our funding is supporting Greenpeace’s ‘Protect the Oceans’ campaign, which is dedicated to addressing the significant threats facing our oceans, including climate change, overfishing, plastic pollution, and mining.
The Global Ocean Treaty, currently in negotiation at the United Nations, has the potential to create ocean sanctuaries that will protect at least 30% of our seas by 2030. Greenpeace is helping to bolster the positions of world leaders championing for the Global Ocean Treaty, as well as engaging potential new champions. A global network of ocean sanctuaries is a crucial step in protecting large parts of the ocean from destructive industries, especially in largely unregulated international waters.
Giving a voice to communities fighting for ocean protection.
Greenpeace endeavours to expose the actions of those damaging the ocean and champion science-backed solutions. Destructive fishing techniques are responsible for extensive damage to marine ecosystems and wildlife. A proposal from some world leaders to exclude fisheries from the Global Ocean Treaty threatens to maintain a status quo that is unsustainable in the long term.
“Our mission is to promote radical changes and new solutions to the ways we live on this planet so that we can all call it home for generations to come.”
The high seas play a critical role in regulating the climate, absorbing vast amounts of carbon dioxide and producing half our oxygen. The ocean is also disproportionately impacted by increasing greenhouse gas emissions from human activities, meaning the future of the planet depends on our actions today.
By ensuring a high-seas platform for scientific research, with a focus on working with scientists from the region, Greenpeace can demonstrate how marine protection and fisheries are able to co-exist sustainably and successfully. Amplifying the voices of communities fighting for ocean protection can highlight the benefits that sustainable practices can bring to both people and wildlife.
“Protecting these natural wonders is simply the right thing to do. But this isn’t just about conscience. It’s about survival.” Greenpeace International
Jamma is supporting Resource Africa to bring a voice to rural communities living alongside wildlife to tell the story of how the equilibrium of sustainable wildlife management and guardianship can be supported and maintained.
