The caravan will journey to the COP17 climate conference in Durban, South Africa, highlighting the everyday challenges being faced and calling for a serious legally binding commitment to an international climate change treaty.

The Caravan of Hope is an awareness-raising campaign organised by the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA).

Along with campaigners called ‘caravanites’ the caravan is driving through 10,000km and passing 10 countries.

PACJA is made up of a network of communities, faith-based organisations, youth movements, journalists and many other civil society groups, including ActionAid, who all have a common goal of highlighting the challenges that climate change poses to Africa.

ActionAid and its Activista youth network members are supporting the project, which aims to bring together communities from diverse backgrounds in Eastern and Southern Africa to join up and demand climate justice.
