Traditional knowledge and local solutions were the focus on the Director of KIPPRA (Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis), the chief guest, Dr. Rose Ngugi. She challenged each person to be an environmentalist despite their career fields. Indeed, the earth is a home to us all. Speaking on behalf of the C.E.O, Mr. Johnson Yeswa, the ICT manager of the National Youth Council, urged the youth to take advantage of such opportunities to network and collaborate since after all, kidole kimoja hakivunji chawa (one finger cannot squash a tick).
