The Global Landscapes Forum is founded on four principles: connecting, sharing, learning and acting. Together with the Youth in Landscapes Initiative the GLF is hosting its first ever hackathon that will connect people, to share ideas, learn from each other and act together to creatively problem solve for on the ground sustainable landscape initiatives. We are looking for the most creative solution to engage African youth in landscape restoration.
