We empower young people in all cadres on how to conserve our natural resources more especially our forests. The information helps to increase knowledge about the key role forests play in sustaining life on our planet. The programme encourages participants to reconnect with our forest heritage and instill young people with a sense of possession of their environment which, in many places, has become lost over time. This reconnect with the environment is intended to reassert the idea that our forests are a natural asset to be treasured and kept safe for future generations, an idea which has for decades been neglected as our trees fuelled economic expansion and lifestyle improvements. The myriad of ways in which forests show a beneficial impact on our lives is stressed to young people, during field project work and trips that help young people see the benefits forests have to our lives and the planet.
