With increasing global consciousness of the interdependence of climate change, food security, poverty and inequity, The Nelson Mandela Foundation is calling on the public to use Nelson Mandela International Day 2022 to find and pursue sustainable solutions to the climate crisis and food security.


The climate crisis is affecting the availability, accessibility, utilisation and affordability of food, which is overwhelmingly experienced by the most vulnerable amongst us. This year’s Nelson Mandela International Day will focus on sustainable interventions such as fruit and indigenous tree planting and promoting community and backyard gardens. The plea to all who support the campaign is ‘Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.’
