Youth plays a major part in the World Forestry Congress

Forests play a significant role in poverty eradication through job creation, economic growth and the supply of basic needs. South African youth are also playing their parts in preserving and taking care of our environment and forests. The XIV World Forestry Congress is expected to draw over 5 000 delegates from across the African continent.

The delegates will also include young people working in the environment sector. This morning we are joined by some of these young people including Ella Bella, founder of Generation Earth and the educational officer of the Miss Earth South Africa leadership programme, and Buyani Ndlovu, Chairperson of the Future Leaders of Change.
