    SIGNATORIES TO THE CHARTER

    • "The future of Africa belongs to its youth. They have the numbers, intellect, creativity and energy to make it better for human well-being and ecosystem health. The African youth cannot afford to be complicit in the destruction of the future. They must exercise their intellect, energy and citizenship in the pursuit of sustainable development and action to combat climate change in Africa".
      Dr. Cosmas Ochieng Executive Director, ACTS.
