Green Champions Holding Their Tree Seedlings
Across the African continent, people are making profound efforts to restore ecosystems and counter troubling trends of pollution, desertification and climate change. Many of these acts of everyday heroism don't receive the attention they deserve.
We asked people to submit photographs bringing some of these actions to light, and our international audiences voted for their favorites from a list of 33 finalists. We received more than 126 photo submissions and over 8,300 votes.
We want to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the GLF Accra Photo Competition, whether by submitting a picture or voting. It's our pleasure to showcase the winner and the top two runners-up as chosen by the public. Congratulations to all.
The winner, Green Champions Holding Their Tree Seedlings, was submitted by Joan Tonui.
