14108KenyaMwanaarafa Hall | Harambee Road,LamuBreak Free From [AntiCoal Khanga show]The ‘Khanga’ is a woman’s cloth worn in different styles carrying meanings ranging from demonstrating one’s modesty, eliciting jealousy to other women, to inviting a husband to bed. Many khanga styles are given Swahili names including ‘ushungi’, ‘kibwebwe’, ‘and Mangea’ and ‘kanga kifua’. The most popular style is ‘ushungi’. As ‘ushungi’ is associated with modesty, women rarely go in public without it.Khangas have messages written and are often worn by women during political rallies and elections to mobilize political party follows and invite new members. They are also used in advocacy and social mobilization in health and other social sectors.Since most of the affected people due to the proposed Coal power plant in Lamu are women we have used one of the women traditional attire as a non verbal means of communication on the effect of coal.Other activities will include the debate competition and Dhow race. Debate competition will include school pupils talking on the theme"Is Coal an Option for Lamu community?", this session will have opposers and proposers.A dhow is one of the Lamu cultural heritage which is used as a means of transport it has a stack that which will be used to bring on the information bout coal and also have some of the logo of partners organization of this fight.Friday, May 25, 9:00 AM saveLamu info@savelamu.org254708073794Approved and on the map

14071South AfricaDBSA OfficeJohannesburg# ThumaMina DBSA: Break Free From ThabametsiThe Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) campaign aims to get the DBSA to publicly commit to not funding the Thabametsi coal fired power plant. Thabametsi is one of 12 plants considered under the Independent Power Producers plan in South Africa. It uses outdated technology and as a result will be a coal plant with disproportionate emissions, impacts on human health, water availability, and agricultural productivity in an age when a new coal plant is not only increasingly unpopular, but a climate crime. 350Africa will be engaging DBSA employees through visual content breaking down why the bank should withdraw from financing Thabametsi. We're calling on the DBSA to be a part of a movement for change, and in reference to Cyril Ramaphosa 'new dawn' speech, deliver on a new approach towards more sustainable, efficient systems that prioritise energy access for South Africans. We're planning to escalate this May, join the action and we'll provide you with more information. To begin, sign this petition to show your support for this campaign --> https://350africa.org/thumamina-heed-the-call-say-no-to-coal-dbsa/Friday, May 25, 4:00 PMAhmed Mogkopoahmed@350.org27,799,168,918Approved and the map

14114ZambiaCopperbelt University HallKitweBreak Free From Sulphur dioxide emissionsThe event will be conducted at the Copperbelt University. We want to stage out an advocacy campaign in the ending of sulphur dioxide that comes from the burning of fossil fuels on the mining plant in Mufulira as well as the wood based industries in Ndola. We want to create awareness on the dangers of sulfur to the environment as well as to the lives of people. The area around Mufulira in Zambia has no vegetation growing because of this same problem of sulfur emmisions. We the students in Environmental management feel they are more renewable sources of energy that can be used that can avoid much production of sulfur dioxide mostly at the mines as well as the wood based industries such as pulp and paper industries. The event will have students brainstorming the ways of reducing this as well as sensitizing the community, industries as well on the dangers of fossil fuel pollution through social media and other Chanel's of social change.Friday, May 25, 2:00 PM Brighton Chamachamabrighton@gmail.com260964496779Approved and on the map
