Professor Wangari Maathai's 7th Memorial Celebration

September 25, 2018

A big thank you to all Kenyans, partners and friends of the Green Belt Movement and Wangari Maathai who joined us in commemorating her 7th memorial anniversary at today's event.

We are delighted that the legacy of Professor Wangari Maathai continues to be vibrant and stronger than ever through our integrated landscape restoration programs at the Green Belt Movement. Her vision is also being strongly propelled through two legacy institutions - the Wangari Maathai Foundation and the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies.

The profound wisdom and endearing values from our Founder have continued to inspire Kenyans and the world to mainstream conservation, promote peace and good governance for sustainable development.

As we mark the 7th memorial anniversary, we would like to call upon all to reflect on the many brave women and men of Africa, and around the world, who work tirelessly to foster peace and act as great stewards of our world's natural resources. Professor Maathai’s life epitomized these values.
