The African Youth summit was aimed at fostering ownership and stewardship of the global Marine Protected Areas agenda among African youth. Our youth network hosted a talk on “Building your career with the environment” with the western Indian Ocean Early Career Scientists Network (WIOECSN). Our members across the region facilitated different sessions in the summit and made a video (Experience working in marine environments – YouTube) which inspired the youth to connect in making a difference.
As African youth, we came together to raise our voices for the ocean, to bring changes, share knowledge and build a better tomorrow through marine protected areas in the Africa continent. We are young and powerful, we can do this together. Let us connect!
