For the third year in a row, we’re sharing the stories of 16 Women Restoring the Earth to celebrate International Women’s Day. And to mark International Forest Day, we were proud to welcome an additional Restoration Steward for Forests to the 2022 cohort: Kandi, a young woman from Kenya. In this newsletter, we’ve asked two amazing colleagues and friends to share their leadership advice for all young women navigating the environmental field. Here’s what they had to say!

In 2021, GLF and YIL continued to create digital spaces for radically inclusive dialogue. Journeying from the African Sahel to the Amazon rainforest and the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, we made amazing connections and friends along the way. None of these would have been possible without our inspiring and passionate community of volunteers and project teams, speakers, and the 2021 Restoration Stewards. We’d like to send a warm “thank you” to everyone who has been part of this journey!
