In Kenya we pride ourselves as having diversified cultures and heritage. This is a major source of tourist attraction. Tourism is the third largest contributor to our economy. Most of the attractions are the indigenous wild animals and natural tourist attractions. Great effort is put to protect nature and promote the different cultures. I have shared video above that shows some of the experiences that one is guaranteed to experience in Kenya. Africa is endowed with unique natur...

I've always believed and advocated that power lies with the people, that is the majority rather the few at the top. This is based on the rationale that it is the majority that votes to put someone in a that position and therefore can vote to take them out. The power is with the people. I wonder if the same can apply in the consumer world. The consumer world works on supply and demand. Methane is as lethal or more lethal than carbon dioxide emission. One of the greatest emitte...

We live in a planet with limited resources. And the exploitation of them is compromising the progress, or even existence, of future generations. Up to now, ignoring the problem has been the easy solution, but when the consequences come to light, it is irresponsible not to question what has brought us here. The demand for resources is still growing (food demand will go up 70% and energy requirements will double in 40 years). However, we must stop and correct if possible the pr...

You know how in those alien invasion movies like "transformers" how aliens can just create a new home on another planet when their own planet is dying out? Well I wish I could say the same for us. We can't just up and go to Mars and set camp there and act like Earth never existed. As much as I hate to admit, we only have this one Earth, this one home. And if it crumbles, so will we. What we are doing right now is creating a world that will not save us. We are robbing tomor...

I first set foot in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, in 2008 when I came to begin my college education. Life in the city was quite different from what I was used to in the village. For me, a city was supposed to be a better place than my village but then the reality on the ground was opposite. Heavy human and vehicle traffic pissed me off; but the worst was to come from garbage that lay along the roads and the estates. When the rain fell, the wastage would block the drainage s...

Reported by Cadmus Atake, Zaid Shopeju and Oluwafunmilayo Oyatogun It is commonly said that what a man can do, a woman can do better, but in the case of Ogoni the women seem to have been relegated to the back burner for too long. Ogoniland has become the poster child for environmental problems in Nigeria, especially as a result of unscrupulous extraction activities of multinational corporations. So, even though the women of Ogoni were well aware of the problems surrounding...

SO THERE’S CLIMATE CHANGE, WHAT NEXT? When I ask people questions regarding climate change I receive many answers; but most of them go along these lines: "it is God who made the Earth he obviously has a plan," or "the earth is probably just changing to prepare us for evolution". Whatever the case Earth is our home and it is our responsibility to maintain it. When dealing with a problem we often need to first identify the problem; in this case the problem is climate change. Climate...

Participating in the Climate Mapping Exercise was both an amazing and educative experience for me. Taking a walk within the community to capture stories and reports for the digital map made me notice many environmental issues that I had not paid attention to previously. Before receiving the participation confirmation email I imagined that I would work together with other selected participants (as a team). Little did I know that the exercise would take me to a path that I had to...
