About Us

 

Mauritius Initiative

OUR WORK

 

Action Against Global Warming was founded in 2011 by youth activist leader Dr Kevin Ramdhun and environmentalist from across MauritiMauritius to build a powerful youth movement focused on solving the climate crisis and addressing environmental justice. Since then the coalition has hosted national Power Shift summits and coordinated on collaborative campaigns like the College Climate Change, Power Vote, and the campaign to make people aware of global warming.

 

Action Against Global Warming strives for a more healthy and just world. We understand that the challenges facing our planet call for more than half measures, so we push for the reforms that are needed, not merely the ones that are politically easy. Sometimes, this involves speaking uncomfortable truths to power and demanding more than people think is possible. It's hard work. But the pressures facing our planet and its people are too important for Mauritius to compromise.

 

We are members of Action Against Global Warming International, a global network representing more than one million activists in 75 different countries. In the Mauritius, we urge policymakers to defend OUR WORK.
