If you want one year of prosperity, plant corn. If you want ten years of prosperity, plant trees. If you want one hundred years of prosperity, educate people. — Chinese proverb
Green Talk, in partnership with Kenya Scouts, is a space for young people and students to write and learn about environmental issues that concern them. We share information and education about issues and campaigns, reflect on our movement for social change, and facilitate communication between students, scouts and environmental groups throughout Kenya. Green Talk has been in print from 2014 and every edition carries the count down towards the scouts trees planting target. The magazine is distributed both online and in print, with printed copies being distributed through Universities and high school-based environment groups, The Kenya Scouts Association’s (Green Patrols), groups and community centres.
The programme is aimed at creating awareness and action around environmental sustainability in schools and their surrounding communities as well as supporting
Why Green Talk?
Our futures are dependent on our capabilities to protect the health and wellbeing of our youth and the planet. This requires eco-education being served to the new generations of citizens with the skills and empowerment to resolve the global environmental problems we face. To secure a green future and a green economy we need a green empowered youth.
Young people taking care of the environment is a novelty that can help them keep busy, develop diverse interests and help themselves into activities that can drive them to see matters in amore holistic manner. This can also help them with economic empowerment.
