Tell Me About Young African Landscape Leadership Program:

With a median age of just 19.7 years, Africa’s diverse population is by far the youngest  of any other continent in the world. These unique demographics offer a significant advantage in the drive to revive ecosystems and safeguard livelihoods. Africa’s youth have immense potential to forge a new development model and vision for the continent as they are already champions for landscape action and community-based solutions.
