GLF Africa Youth Storytelling Context 2024

Through the GLF Africa Youth Storytelling Context 2024, inspiring tales emerge of how Africa’s youth are regenerating landscapes, protecting biodiversity, leading climate action, and safeguarding the rights and livelihoods of millions.

They believe storytelling has the power to ignite change, inspire action and connect people across borders. Following the powerful stories we heard in 2022 and 2023, the 2024 Africa Youth Storytelling Contest welcomes stories in a wide variety of formats, including video, audio, visual art, animation or another creative medium.


Your story should share your thoughts, hopes and dreams about a future for Africa that values community, collaboration, inclusivity and resilience. In simple words: what should a bright future for Africa look like?

Key themes for your story could include (but are not limited to) food sovereignty, sustainable food systems, biodiverse landscapes, land tenure, ecosystem restoration, gender, climate justice, Indigenous rights, community-led action, youth leadership and sustainable finance.
