Konkankoh has more than 40 years of diverse and global experience across social entrepreneurship development sectors in Africa and in Europe. His career spans senior leadership and entrepreneurial roles in social transformation, environmental management, sustainable development and consulting. Since 1996 when Konkankoh registered Better World Cameroon (BWC), he has been leading a green revolution and youth development concept based on Systems thinking — an innovative method of resolving the complex cultural challenges pushing thousands of youth to migrate out of Africa, with speed, sustainably, and at scale. Konkankoh was evicted from his country in 2018 by the civil war and lives today in Portugal where he mentors and coaches a diverse group of young change-makers, developing new societal platforms in the domains of education, social inclusion, healthcare, civil society governance, and livelihoods. Konkankoh’s youth development platform Ndanifor Permaculture Ecovillage that was recently burnt down by French Cameroon military included large-scale regenerative agriculture systems supported by global philanthropic collaborators. In parallel to Ecovillage design work, Konkankoh is grooming Global Ecovillage Network (GEN), Africa’s next-generation leadership that is engaged in developing a regenerative education system in Africa. Konkankoh is passionate about mentoring young social entrepreneurs. Faced with the challenges of the Genocide in Ambazonia and COVID-19 pandemic, Konkankoh focuses his attention on reconnecting refugees to the land using Permaculture and looking for support to accompany them with seed funding. Konkankoh’s organization Better World is a not-for-profit incubator and accelerator focused on non-formal education. Konkankoh is a social Innovation advisor to Defend the Sacred Alliance.

Koh is a journalist and Communications Manager for Better World Cameroon. Koh has worked in print and broadcast media in Cameroon but is now involved in freelance and digital media journalism and activism since moving to Portugal in 2019 due to the severe crackdown on journalists reporting the atrocities happening in Southern Cameroons. Koh has been with Better World for more than 9 years and participates in the organization’s efforts to improve the lives of women and young people through regenerative education and entrepreneurship. Koh’s current work centers around creating awareness in Europe about the ongoing crisis in his country to push for international support towards an end to the war. Koh is also the co-founder of two small startup companies in Cameroon, Njangi and K and K media. Koh is passionate about storytelling, art and technology. He believes these are key areas that will take Africa to the level where it is no longer portrayed in Western media narratives as a place of poverty and disease, but where Africans can tell their own stories and forge their path, void of post-colonial shackles and western exploitation.
