GEO-6 for Youth Africa: A Wealth of Green Opportunities - Global Environment Outlook
United Nations Environment Programme

Africa’s sustainability future is bright. In that future, green jobs abound so much that youth unemployment is dealt a decisive blow. But for this future to materialise, young people, policymakers, private sector players, local communities, and Africans as a whole must roll up their sleeves and work very hard at ensuring replenishment and not depletion of natural resources. The numerous pathways that lead to this future can be found in parliaments, learning institutions, work places, local markets, city streets, farms, and all across Africa.
