The Luum Awards is the first of its kind in the world to award communication centred on social, environmental and animal rights awareness.

Justdiggit works with millions of farmers across Africa to rehabilitate arid land. These projects directly empower local farmers by rejuvenating the land that Africans need to prosper and so safeguard the future of the continent.

It is also important to promote these simple regreening solutions to people across the world, to give hope and inspiration in regards to climate change. We would not be where we are today without the support of Havas.”
