Nairobi

To achieve the climate goals, we must increase the use of wood, all over the world. Therefore, we were extra proud of the invitation from UN to go to Nairobi, Kenya to talk about the fact that the world’s construction industry needs to convert to renewable building materials. This also means that we have to plant more trees, something that not only concerns Kenya but all of Africa.

Our trip in Kenya started with a visit to Karura Forest in Nairobi, a park that was rescued the from exploitation by Wangari Mathaii. A super woman who started the Green Belt Movement and allowed women throughout the country to plant trees to have their own livelihood. In 2004 she won the Nobel Peace Prize. An incredible and amazing story.

Green Belt Movement tirelessly continues to fight for the environment. Today they have planted over 51 million trees. To give the plants the best start in life, they are protected from the scorching sun and watered regularly. They are then planted, not only to save the environment, but also to allow democracy and women’s rights to grow.
