International Day of Forests celebrations

March 22, 2019

Yesterday, we joined the world in marking this auspicious day across the country. The Green Belt Movement participated in three concurrent events at City Park Nairobi, Pirates Youth Group Centre in Mathare and the national event, graced by Ministry of Environment & Forestry CS Keriako Tobiko, in Siaya County.

The day's theme "Forests and Education" aimed at sensitising members of the public on the importance of trees to human life.

In Siaya County, we had an opportunity to set up an exhibition showcasing among other items, products made from recycled plastic waste by our community groups.
