Scheduled for 2-3rd June 2021, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Africa Digital Conference with the focus on restoring Africa’s Drylands is expected to put the spotlight on tackling issues of land degradation, Climate Change, conflict, and migration.

The Digital conference is expected to host 7,000 attendees with over 90% of them from Africa, featuring 200+ quintessential speakers from various expected fields with rich experiences in the sector.

The conference has been designed with Youth Daily Shows which would give an enabling platform to eight young experts in four interesting interactive sessions as well as a video challenge from the finalists at the event. 

This Youth Daily Show would be an effective 30-minute interactive session with young activists, scientists, and restoration practitioners who will showcase successful restoration stories, explore potential youth jobs opportunities in drylands restoration, highlight the amazing role that women play in restoration efforts, and discuss the importance of integrating agroforestry into restoration solutions.
