Carbon Tanzania: Our Official Charity.
The Kilimanjaro Marathon is proud to announce their association and charity partnership with Carbon Tanzania for the 2017 event.
We would love to encourage all international runners to offset their carbon emissions by supporting this amazing organisation as flying is one area where it is hard to reduce your carbon impact.
Climate change is considered the biggest threat of our time, with the effects being felt by everyone and protecting existing forests is one of the most effective methods to combat climate change as mature trees both absorb and store carbon. Greenhouse gas emissions can be generated in Europe but the effects are felt in Africa or Asia and it is the poor who will feel the effects acutely, so if we can slow the rate of climate change then the poor all over Tanzania will benefit. Few people know how to tackle the problem so we offer a way for everyone to act on global climate change, and protect threatened forests and their indigenous communities at the same time.
