I am passionate aboutI come from a coastal region where communities’ main activities are
fishing, farming and tourism; while growing i have seen this business
collapse due to pollution by plastic waste and people dying of poverty. So
when teenager i developed this passion for the protection of nature. I become
engineer in environment and aquatic ecosystems management. After two years of
internship with the Zoologica Society of London an international NGO working
in Cameroon, I founded Madiba & Nature in 2016 and work with passionate
friends of innovations and ITECH, Arts and Renewable energies to develop
another form of business that will contribute to a better environment welfare
while creating jobs into the community.
This is why i'm a passionate of the nature protection and I strongly believe
that promoting the circular economy and Ecotourism is an encouraging factor
for sustainable development in Africa.
ActionsThe research program on ecological recycling methods of plastic waste, with
already "ECOBOAT" manufactured for support fishing and Ecotourism, inspired
new economic activities in the Londji village.
A first plastic waste management system based entirely on local communities
is being tested at the moment; it consists in boosting an independent network
of mobile collectors coordinated by Madiba & Nature and which sorts and
collects plastic bottles in households and the urban environment. The current
network has a little more than twenty (20) collectors An environmental education program has been launched with a module of
coaching young students and engineer for personal development and
entrepreneurship in the fields of green business (it currently has nine (09)
members with the key coaching a start-up project in the recycling of organic
waste from an incubated group. In addition a real exchange and sharing of
experience through participation in international events is included in our
activities with participation from 01 to 14 October 2017 at the festival of
contemporary art of the grigri pixel edition of 2017 in Madrid
The project to promote ecotourism with the key to the valuation of Ecoboat in
fishing and especially local tourism to revitalize the economy of the fishing
village of Londji. The first eco-beach model is in the South of Cameroon.
- A fifth result since the creation of Madiba & Nature has been the
scientific study of the ecological monitoring of the Coastal Coast between
the beach of South and South - West Cameroon on the characterization of solid
waste pollution; The following results were obtained after six months of
study from February to July 2017.
