UNHCR & Land Life Company, It Will Be Green Again, 2018. 

Set through the eyes of a refugee family living on a Green Refugee Camp in Minawao Camp Cameroon, It Will Be Green Again shows how sustainable solutions are being implemented in refugee camps. The short documentary by the Summit's partner, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and Land Life Company, shows how to build hope for the future by planting trees in the camp. Since 2017, 40.000 trees were planted through the “Green Refugee Camp” project,  aiming to regreen the surroundings of the Minawao Camp, to reverse land degradation, to provide green spaces for the refugee communities and to foster a closer relationship between the refugee and host communities.
