Raintree Solutions – Global Partners in Change Raintree

Raintree mounts One Young World Environment Breakaway

Raintree mounted the breakaway at the Johannesburg zoo for One Young World delegates, where three powerful presentations were given to delegates from over twenty countries including Australia, England, France, Solomon Islands, Bangladesh, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, India, Kenya, Cameroon, Brazil, Philippines, Indonesia, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, UAE, Dubai, UK and USA 

Whilst the focus was on the war against rhino and other poaching , the theme was ‘how it affects everyone’, through the direct connections between all life in the web of life and also the connection to and involvement of criminals who are linked to drugs, terrorism, child trafficking and smuggling throughput the world.

The delegates were all encouraged to find a project or issue in their home country and to embark on it or join and to keep Raintree in the loop as we link all the participants globally.
