African Youth Waste Network
… these are just some the words that are used to describe the youth of our generation.
Be the voice of change
Hey, you! We need your help. Did you know that every three seconds, 1000 kilograms of plastic waste enters the ocean? This is happening right now, and this is why Africa Needs You. The African Youth Waste Network (AYWN) is an active platform for collaboration, resource development, and knowledge sharing amongst the youth within and between countries. The African Youth Waste Network in collaboration with Norway is on a mission to reach Zero Plastics to the Seas of Africa. We want healthier and cleaner oceans, and we must act now before it’s too late.

You Can Do This in any fun and creative way that works best for you. Whether you have started or not, we are here to help you.
Don’t worry, you won’t have to do this on your own. You can get your friends and family to join this movement too. Remember that no action is too small, and you have the voice and power to make an impact.
