Senegal – Solving tomorrow’s problems?

As of this writing, it’s January 30, 2024, the planet is still on fire. We humans are not getting it. It’s not like we don’t know what’s happening, or why, or how to fix it. According to NOAA’s 2023 Annual Climate Report the combined land and ocean temperature has increased at an average rate of 0.11° Fahrenheit (0.06° Celsius) per decade since 1850, or about 2° F in total. The rate of warming since 1982 is more than three times as fast: 0.36° F (0.20° C) per decade. The rate of warming since 1982 is more than three times as fast: 0.36° F (0.20° C) per decade (data courtesy of NOAA.) Whatever we’re doing, it isn’t working. But one country is . . .

But, it’s not for a lack of trying, and, in this case, Senegal is taking the bull by the horns when it comes to saving the planet and its people. Watch the video above to see a country that is taking the problem seriously. Senegal, officially the Republic of Senegal, is a country in West Africa, on the Atlantic Ocean coastline. Senegal is bordered by Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest. Senegal has a rich cultural heritage with a mix of influences from indigenous tribes, Islamic traditions, and French colonial history.

Visitors can explore traditional villages, experience local music and dance, and visit historical sites. As proof of this, Senegal is home to Gorée Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its role in the transatlantic slave trade. The House of Slaves on Gorée Island is a poignant reminder of this dark period in history. Additionally, there are other historical sites like the Dakar Grand Mosque and the African Renaissance Monument. Consider Senegal for your next holiday.
