Three-way partnership empowers communities to fight climate change
The Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve (GCBR), CapeNature, and Wonderbag – the company that manufactures and markets a heat-retention cooking bag with the same name – have launched a project in Oudtshoorn and De Rust that is creating jobs, developing skills and giving disadvantaged households the tools to help fight climate change.
CapeNature and GCBR have been running community workshops about climate change for a while. “The Wonderbag initiative is a scaled-up version of what we have been doing,” says Wendy Crane from GCBR. “We can now reach many more people.”
