On 18 July every year, Nelson Mandela International Day is marked by encouraging individuals to make a difference in their communities.
Nelson Mandela devoted his life to the service of humanity — as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa.
To commemorate the Nelson Mandela international day the ActNow x Mandela Day challenge has been launched to limit global warming and take care of our planet.
ActNow is the United Nations campaign for individual action on climate change and sustainability.
Every one of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet. By changing our habits and making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment, we can tackle the climate emergency and build a more sustainable world.
As Nelson Mandela said, "We must never forget that it is our duty to protect this environment."
