Young African Landscape Leadership Program 2022

Application for Young African Landscape Leadership Program 2022 is ongoing!

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. 

The GLF, in partnership with the Youth in Landscapes Initiative, is launching the first-ever Young African Landscape Leadership, an eight-month annual program filled with networking meetings, regional dialogues, workshops, and much more.
