Second African Greenpeace office opens

23 February 2009

Late last year, we posted about Greenpeace's first office opening in Africa. Johannesburg to be precise. Well, now the second office has opened. It's based in the Democratic Republic of Congo, central Africa. Greenpeace ship, the Arctic Sunrise, journeyed up the Congo River to kick off the launch. The office will work on protecting forests in the Congo Basin and encouraging sustainable forest management. Rene Ngongo, Greenpeace campaigner, says, "Greenpeace is presenting an alternative showing it is not necessary to cut trees to cook your dinner. And these are practical solutions." Take a look at this video of the opening.
