Beginning of July, the AEF fellows gathered to launch their very first campaign. The focus was to be set on sustainable development and awareness, birthing our campaign hashtag #greenaef.
In less than a week, we have managed to reach a total of 16.000 people all over the world. Bringing new light and awareness of the sustainability topic.

With a growing world population hunger and malnutrition are on the rise. In South Africa e.g. have 6,8 million people experienced hunger in 2017. Especially, farmers and families living in rural areas are effected by this issue. Therefore, it is very important to support farmers to adopt organic farming so that they can increase their agricultural yield in a sustainable manner and guarantee a local food security. Each and every consumer can change their habits by buying organic food and contribute to better living conditions for the farmers and to a healthy life for themselves.🍃 • • 👉Tag a friend to remind him/her to buy organic food #greenaef #gogreen #sustainability #sdg #agriculture #zerohunger #unite #Europe #Africa #organicfarming #organicfood #bio #fruitfulsoil #changehabits #eathealthy #oneworld #onelife

We’d also like to share special thanks to Nigeria for their active engagement during the campaign.
Last but not least, we also established some fine partnerships along the way. Please meet three entrepreneurs that are looking to improve the economic, social and political growth of the African continent:
