Climate change and future generations conscious king, the monarch plants trees with the young at Karura forest in Kenya


King Charles on Wednesday 1st November, 2023 met with Nobel laureate Wangari Maathai's daughter Wanjira Maathai as the two helped plant a tree in memory of the late globally-acclaimed conservationist.
While appreciating the King's gesture, Wanjira, who is the Managing Director for Africa and Global Partnerships, said that she was honoured to welcome and plant a tree with His Majesty in celebration of her mother.
"Today, Nairobi without Karura Forest is unimaginable. This is thanks to everyone who fought hard to protect it," she wrote, adding; "A true honour to welcome and plant a tree with His Majesty in celebration of my mother, Wangari Maathai."

                The mark that was left by Wangari Maathai is a history that will live forever and seeing the same legacy protected by her daughter Wanjira Maathai can only make it better. Long live the King for acknowledging the great hard work by both Wangari and Wanjira Maathai.

                        It's great to see the King taking action against climate change and setting an example for future generations. Planting trees in the Karura forest in Kenya is a positive step towards preserving the environment and combating deforestation. This initiative not only helps in reducing carbon emissions but also creates a sustainable habitat for wildlife. It is important for leaders to prioritize environmental conservation and work towards a greener future.
