The Africa Environment Outlook or Youth (AEO) is the youth version of the AEO report and has resulted from the combined efforts of young people from all over Africa. It is a report of Africa’s environment through the eyes of Africa’s youth. Apart from drawing extensively from the first Africa Environment Outlook: Past, Present and Future Perspectives Report, this book also contains new and unique contributions from Africa’s young people. These contributions have been captured through articles, poems, proverbs, drawings and paintings. At the heart of this powerful youth voice is a desire to steer Africa towards an environmentally, socially and economically vibrant future.
