Climate change has always happened but in recent years man-made climate change has come into the equation. We are seeing global warming rapidly approaching a level that would be a severe threat towards our survival. And yet still our lives are hugely dependent on the burning of fossil fuels, releasing CO2 into the atmosphere and adding to global warming.
The UNA Eastbourne scheme is aimed at both carbon capture and the reduction of carbon emissions. Our Carbon offset scheme allows individuals and institutions to pay for, through their subscriptions, the planting of trees in Eastern Uganda that would offset the carbon footprint from their own electricity consumption. We all benefit from the offsetting of carbon emissions.
The UNA Eastbourne branch has had over 15 years of involvement in development projects in eastern Uganda. For full details of our scheme follow this link CO2 Scheme UNA.
