The Great Green Wall: Documentary aims to raise awareness of this exciting initiative which has won 10 awards to date: An ambitious reforestation project which aims to plant a wall of trees 8,000km-long across Africa by 2030.
Launched in 2007 by the African Union, the African-led initiative aims to restore the continent’s degraded landscapes and transform millions of lives in one of the world’s poorest regions – the Sahel. Once built, it will be the largest living structure on the planet, three times the size of the Great Barrier Reef.
