Celebrating EC+15 with a climate change walk in Kenya

On September 25th, 2015, the Green Belt Movement, Earth Charter Affiliate in Kenya, celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Earth Charter with a Climate Change walk in Kitale town, parallel to Professor Wangari Maathai’s fourth memorial anniversary walk in Nairobi.  This event was organized in collaboration with Green Cross Sweden.

The walk aimed at mobilizing communities to raise their voice on climate change and engage local leaders to address this global issue. Individuals and organizations were also called upon to endorse the Earth Charter, which calls for a global partnership for a just, sustainable and peaceful world. More than 300 people endorsed the Earth Charter and 2000 flyers about the Earth Charter were distributed.
