September 25, 2015 marks the fourth memorial anniversary of Professor Wangari Maathai passing.

On this day the Green Belt Movement (GBM) will lead a people’s march to encourage communities to raise their voices on climate change and the natural environment.

Approximately 500 community members and partners will march in Nairobi starting from the historical Jeevanjee Gardens through Moi Avenue, Haile Selassie Avenue, and Uhuru Park and then to Freedom Corner where participants will be addressed by various speakers.

A similar march will take place in Western Kenya, Kitale where GBM has trained Community members as Trainers on Natural Resource Management.

That’s the way I do things when I want to celebrate, I always plant a tree. And so I got an indigenous tree, called Nandi flame, it has this beautiful red flowers. When it is in flower it is like it is in flame.
