Green Print Project

As Peace ambassadors Kenya, we recognize that there is no nation that can achieve sustainable peace without managing it’s environment. In the words of the late Nobel Prize laureate Pro. Wangari Mathai, “If we destroy nature today, nature will destroy us in the future.”
To this end, PAK runs the Green Print Project, incepted in November 2015 that aims at reducing the Carbon Print as a response to the myriad of concerns that afflict the country in respect to the environment.
We therefore acknowledge the urgent need to mobilize and sensitize communities to adopt environmentally sound practices.

Targets:

  1. Contribute to reducing waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse
  2. Ensuring people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature
  3. Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning
  4. Promote mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management focusing on youth and local communities

Activities:

  1. We have conducted workshops and trainings on environmental conservation
  2. We have conducted sensitization campaigns on environmental sustainability 
  3. We have incorporated environmental conservation agendas in PAK institutional clubs and chapters
  4. We have increased the knowledge of communities on water and forest conservation and management
  5. We incubated an integrated community environment management project in Nessuit, Mau Forest
  6. We have promoted re-afforestation in Mau Forest in Nakuru County, Tanyai Forest in Nyeri County, and Kakamega Forest in Kakamega County
  7. We have conducted community clean-up activities across the country
