Vincent Kunda, President of the Kongo River Association
The Congo River, this gigantic African ecosystem, is threatened by industrial and domestic pollution, an obstacle to its tourist and economic development. Vincent Kunda, president of the Kongo River association, is fighting against impotence and indifference towards this treasure of humanity's heritage. Since 2011, he has set the goal of protecting and enhancing the largest river in Africa, shared by 450 ethnic groups. This artist has developed a holistic approach to the challenges of the river through an annual festival, which is both a scientific meeting and a festive event. This year's edition will take place in June in Muanda, west of the DRC.
