About The Event

Zimbabwe is amongst the poorest countries in the world, yet reforesting is giving hope to rural communities in the North of the country. An area the size of Wales (equivalent to 10,000,000 trees) is being lost every year. This is having a direct impact on communities who rely on the forests for their livelihoods. Ecologist Clare Griffiths, set-up Miti Yangu, a community reforestation project in rural Zimbabwe after years of working in the non-timber forest products industry. She works with local communities to harvest seeds of local trees, create sustainable nurseries while working to support a long-term gain to all members of the communities.

Join artist and researcher Lorenza Ippolito and Ecologist Clare Griffiths to discuss both the differences and similarities in forest conservation in Zimbabwe and the UK, relational aspects of community work and the effect of the Anthropocene globally.
