Resilient40

Meet the Members: Happy Arnold

Meet Happy Arnold – founder of Youth in Agriculture for Economic Development (YAED) in Malawi, and member of the Resilient40.

While our changemakers were gathered at the 2019 conference, news of Cyclone Idai was flooding the airwaves. In Happy’s home country alone, 56 people died as a result – a devastating demonstration of the crucial importance of securing climate resilience. However, Happy believes that Africa’s youth has the power, the voice, and the impact to change the mindsets of people when it comes to fighting the climate crisis.
