We Don’t Have Time receives climate award in Tanzania

We Don’t Have Time has been awarded the Climate Action Achievers Award 2023 in Tanzania.
”This is a recognition of the endless effort and hard work put in by our entire team,” says Patrick Kiarie, Region representative of We Don’t Have Time's Kenya Chapter.
"Winning this award means a lot to our team. It will improve our visibility and credibility”, says Patrick Kiarie, Region representative, We Don’t Have Time Kenya Chapter.

The Climate Action Achievers Award is presented by Jielimishe Kwanza, a Tanzanian Training and Consultancy company with the mission to inspire action for Sustainable development. The jury's motivation reads:
”We Don’t Have Time has been awarded the CIimate Action Achievers (AACAA) Award 2023 …in recognition of your efforts to continuously raise awareness on environmental issues and specifically the engagement of the youths in mobilizing global efforts towards climate solutions in Africa. Further, your efforts to mobilize communities, institutions, organizations and governments to take decisive actions for the health of our planet have been considered to be highly pivotal in fostering positive efforts towards addressing the climate pandemic that our generations currently face.”

Team effort for environmental action

Patrick Kiarie, regional director of We Don´t Have Time in East Africa, says the whole Kenya office was elated on receiving news on the award. ”It brought immense joy, excitement and motivation to me and my team. This recognition is due to the endless efforts and hard work put in by the entire team towards making a significant impact on the environment.”
We Don’t Have Time Kenya chapter was founded only two years ago, and has since then visited almost every part of the country to mobilize people to join We Don't Have Time and be part of the climate change solutions. Last year, the team organized a mobilization trip to neighboring Tanzania to spread awareness of the climate crisis and encourage more people to join the movement.
”During the visit, we met with the Minister for Energy and Mining, and the University of Dar es Salaam leadership where we established partnerships through their student bodies. We also met with several community and organization leaders in the country. It is, therefore, amazing to know that a year later, the climate conversation story we started in Tanzania is still growing. We hope to extend this conversation across all the countries in Africa”, says Patrick Kiarie.
This is where We Don't Have Time will receive the award on World Environment Day.

We Don’t Have Time’s Kenya office is now invited to receive the Climate Action Achievers Award during the Leaders Environmental (#LEA) Program, at the Regency Park Hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city and financial hub, on World Environment Day, June 5.
”It is an honor to be invited for the event in Tanzania. We look forward to sharing details on how our platform works and urge the audience to join hands with us via our platform as we fight to combat the effects of climate change together. Will also network with like-minded people and organizations as we seek mutual partnerships & collaboration.”
Over 20 organizations have been invited to participate at the event, which is organized by Jielimishe Kwanza (meaning ‘Educate yourself first’), a company that organizes green training, social and environmental entrepreneurship, eco-event planning, and courses and seminars on topics like Building Green business and management, and Green Team Building.
