In 2010, Misha gathered like-minded individuals to plant 1000 trees in 1 month and hasn’t stopped since! In 2008 Misha was part of an expedition Doing it For Africa, and drove from Cape Town to London overland, profiling NGO’s and community-based projects through 21 African Countries.

In 2011 he landed Top 200 Young South Africans by the Mail and Guardian and in 2013 was nominated by Mail and Guardian and Department of Environmental affairs as one of SA’s top climate change leaders. He has been included in Legacy Project hall of fame for those out to make a difference in the world.

When he is not planting trees, you can find him inspiring entrepreneurs as a YALI Africa Fellow or sprinting up Table Mountain.

Misha is invited to speak at conferences, workshops, and gatherings regularly, from TEDx, United Nations, Pecha-Kucha and Universities globally.
