Communities for Future
Our Response to the Climate Emergency
February 1-10, 2020
Sonita is an inspiring example of the huge impact that empowered youth can have. Her vocation and enthusiastic work in different dimensions of sustainability have created a very needed change of paradigm around her, not only transforming people's relationship with their land but also by challenging cultural gender norms in Africa. She is a witness of how an ecovillage approach to life brought her closer with ancestral ways of living while at the same time introducing holistic innovative approaches that transform the way youth may look at their future.
