Hope and Resiliency: The Story of Africa’s Great Green Wall

Since the 1970’s, Africans have been dreaming and working towards the goal of a Great Green Wall, an effort to reverse the desertification trend across the Sahel region that borders the Sahara Desert by planting a “wall” of trees across the African continent. More than 20 countries across Africa have committed to this initiative, which aims to combat climate change and desertification and address food insecurity, poverty, conflicts over declining natural resources, and forced migration. Join Abrahamic House as we view a film about the Great Green Wall, learn about the involvement of faith communities, and discuss the challenges, successes, and opportunities for scaling the initiative.
