Lindelwa Kunene is the Green Voice for the Kingdom of Eswatini

In Africa, Africa Innovators and Influencers, Climate, Publisher Channel by Mary Kurek

Lindelwa Kunene is a big voice in a very small place.  But, his big “green” voice carries significant weight in the second smallest country in continental Africa, named Eswatini.

Lindelwa is a social entrepreneur with almost a decade of experience in leadership with various global and national organizations that range from leadership, humanitarianism, public policy, education for sustainable development, community development, climate change advocacy, and social entrepreneurship. He has worked and currently contributes to the success of organizations such as Global Goodwill Ambassadors, Afrika Speaks, UNESWA Green Team, Global Waste Solutions, Global Youth Biodiversity Network, International Human Rights Council, UNFCCC Youth Model, Students in Advancement for Global Entrepreneurship, Southern African Youth Movement, and Zimbabwe Sunshine Group. Lindelwa has served as a regional coordinator for the Africa Green Waste & Energy Expo/Conference, a platform aimed at inspiring the next generation of “greenpreneurs.”  Lindelwa has an honorary award from the government of Eswatini for his role in advancing recycling and waste management which he received in the 2018 Temvelo Awards.

Lindelwa currently serves on the local task team for UNESCO ESD 4 2030 Country Initiative as a youth representative. The mandate is to ensure that Sustainable Development Goals are achieved by the country before 2030.

Other than Lindelwa’s drive and obvious passion for impact, of note, is this young man’s vision of entrepreneurial success, which is undaunting and far bigger than the real estate on which he lives.
