BRINGING GGI TO LIFE
Green Generation Initiative was founded in 2016 by Elizabeth Wathuti; a recipient of Wangari Maathai scholarship award, with an aim of addressing the global environmental challenges that she identified with since childhood such as deforestation, climate change, pollution and environmental injustices.
She has been passionate about the environment since childhood mostly because she was able to love and connect to nature at a young age. She planted her first tree at the age of 7 years in her home village where planting trees was a norm and was greatly inspired by the late professor Wangari Maathai.
“I often used to think to myself ‘Why not nurture and raise more young people to be conscious of the environment so that their collective action will help to address global environmental challenges?’. Afterall, there is a saying: “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” Our founder, Elizabeth Wathuti.
