- Chiagozie Udeh is a 24-year-old Nigerian expert on Climate Change policy, energy campaigning and a youth leader on Africa’s clean energy sector. Since 2015, he has been a Programme Coordinator for Plant-for-the-Planet in Nigeria where it hosts academies to train young Climate Justice ambassadors between 9-15 years as well as organize tree-planting activities in cities within the country. In 2019, he was elected the Chairperson of the Executive Global board of Plant-for-the-Planet after the historic launch of the Trillion Trees campaign, a flagship programme of the organization which aims to plant 1 trillion trees by 2030 and reduce carbon emissions by 25%. The project was launched in March 2018 in Monaco with Prince Albert II of Monaco playing host to the historic event. The target of 1 trillion trees is based on a study of Crowther Lab and Plant-for-the-Planet which revealed that the planet has space for 1 trillion trees outside existing forest.
