Cameroon

cameroonIn 2000, the NGO Nouvelle Afrique presented the Earth Charter at various important events in Cameroon, for example at the National Arts and Culture Festival, and several other events in different Cameroonian regions. These events offered an opportunity to raise awareness about the Earth Charter and discuss its principles and other important issues regarding sustainability with a wide range of people, including artists and intellectuals, youth and faith organizations, and government officials.

The Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child (CAPEC) organized a series of meetings with youth leaders, schools and other institutions to promote the vision of Earth Charter in Cameroon. In 2008, CAPEC organized a two-week workshop for 100 orphaned children from six orphanages in Yaoundé. The workshop raised awareness about the Earth Charter and sustainable development. In 2007, they created an Earth Charter Youth Group called ECYG Yaoundé Cameroon Association for the Protection and Education of the Child (CAPEC).

Other youth groups that joined the network between 2009 and 2010 are LUKMEF-Cameroon-ECYG, ECYG AFREDECC Limbe, and Better World Cameroon.
