Wangari Maathai

Wangari Maathai

a Kenyan environmental and political activist.
I would like to call on young people to commit themselves to activities that contribute toward achieving their long-term dreams. They have the energy and creativity to shape a sustainable future. To the young people I say, you are a gift to your communities and indeed the world. You are our hope and our future.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The way in which we can promote peace, is by promoting sustainable management of our resources, equitable distribution of these resources, and that the only way you can actually do that, is that then you have to have a political, economic system that facilitates that. And then you get into the issues of human rights, justice, economic justice, social justice, and good governance or democratic governance. That's how it ties up.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I’m very conscious of the fact that you can’t do it alone. It’s teamwork. When you do it alone you run the risk that when you are no longer there nobody else will do it.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's the little things citizens do. That's what will make the difference. My little thing is planting trees.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When resources are degraded, we start competing for them, whether it is at the local level in Kenya, where we had tribal clashes over land and water, or at the global level, where we are fighting over water, oil, and minerals. So one way to promote peace is to promote sustainable management and equitable distribution of resources.More Wangari Maathai quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
