Restoration Stewards on Science Day at Rio Pavilion

Young Africans have strong visions for their land: their stories of restoring landscapes are also stories of young people defining their own narratives of a good life and creating multiple, contradictory and coexisting futures across the continent. In this short session co-created by the World Agroforestry Center, the Global Landscapes Forum and the Youth in Landscapes Initiative  young Kenyan restoration practitioner Adrian Leitoro shared his thoughts and experiences, focusing on the importance of healthy landscapes for climate adaptation and food sovereignty in Africa.
