Climate Change Awareness Campaign,Kajiado County Edition

The world is home to 1.8 billion young people between the ages of 10 to 24-the largest generation of youths in history. It gives hope seeing young people increasingly becoming aware of the challenges and risks presented by the climate crisis and of the opportunity to achieve sustainable development brought by a solution to climate change.
The extraordinary global mobilization of young people demonstrates the enormous potential they have to hold policymakers responsible. Since the young people are the agents of change, they must be always directly involved in every climate change conversation and given an opportunity to be part of policy makers.
We Don’t Have Time- Kenya had an opportunity to interact with students from Africa Nazarene University during their Creation care week event, which was graced by Universities Kenya Fund where they continued to create awareness & sensitization programs on climate change matters. The audience was delighted by the teams’ commitments to protect the earth as they collectively agreed to join hands.

Apart from everyone playing a part by raising their voice, sharing climate solutions, and advocating for change, everyone should also lead by example through climate action. It is crystal clear that in order to mitigate climate change impacts; daily climate action must be taken seriously by all through different ways.
Growing trees is one of the ways of mitigating these impacts, because despite them being the largest plants in the world, they also provide humans with oxygen, store carbon, stabilize the soil, and support a variety of fauna throughout the globe. To curb deforestation problem, everyone should grow as many trees as possible.
After the sensitization session We Don’t Have Team – Kenya in partnership with Universities of Kenya Fund which offers sustainable loans and Africa Nazarene University planted 500 trees around the school which will be watered and protected by the school administration.

After a series of activities during the day, We Don’t Have Time – Kenya team was honored to take part in the institutions’ Gala night where students from different countries performed to represent their respective cultures. Still in the midst of this joyous and thrilling occasion, because of the good work the team is doing, they were able to secure a chance where they did a presentation on climate change matters.
