Virtual Learning Experience – Youth Power in Restoration

27 January 2021
11:00 AM Nairobi

Register now for this special conversation organized by one of the first GLFx chapters, GLFxNairobi, and World Agroforestry. Join this virtual learning experience that will aim to answer the question: How can Kenyan youth take the lead in restoring their landscapes and foster synergies to scale-up efforts?

Join speakers like Patricia Kombo, a youth climate activist in Kenya known for her tree planting initiatives as part of her nonprofit PaTree Initiative. The initiative has planted over 10,000 trees as of 2020. For this work, Kombo has been named a United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification Land Hero.

This event will showcase and talk through five steps of a leadership journey:

  • The existing efforts of youth leaders who are starting their own organizations or joining existing ones
  • Networking to gain community support
  • Confronting challenges head-on
  • The ins and outs of restoration financing e.g., business opportunities within restoration
  • How music, art, drama, theatre, song, and dance can inspire landscape restoration
