An online workshop to help young activists across Africa share experiences and work towards building back better after the coronavirus crisis.
The world’s focus is on recovering from the coronavirus crisis, and rightly so. But the climate crisis continues, and tackling it is as vital as ever. While lockdown and quarantines might make it harder to do so, there are still so many ways we can keep this movement strong. Through collective learning and skill sharing we can learn how to operate in this new context and be ready to demand a just recovery from COVID-19.
