REV On Air: The Power of Individual Climate Activism with Elizabeth Wathuti
Today we are thrilled to welcome an incredible young woman who is showing us all what it can mean to be a climate activist as individuals and as communities, as well as showing us the power of future generations in terms of resilience and passion for saving the natural world. Elizabeth Whatuti isn’t yet out of her teenage years, but she has already started a tree planting foundation in her local town in Kenya and the Green Generation Initiative, which has been working on a range of solutions to address the challenges of; climate emergency, deforestation and biodiversity loss, eco –anxiety and ecological grief and society disconnected from nature.
“I am crying for nature’s destruction. I am crying for the hungry children. I am crying because I love them. But I am not standing back, and feeling hopeless. I am working with others here at Green Generation Initiative to protect those places where nature touches us close to home.”

Elizabeth Wathuti, Founder of Green Generation Initiative (GGI)
“We have a chance to turn to nature and towards life by taking urgent action now to address the most pressing issues of our time like climate change. By nurturing young people to have the same love for nature and working with them to regenerate nature, and ensure that the worlds’ remaining natural ecosystems remain intact always gives me hope about the future. Green Generation Initiative is creating a generation of environmentally conscious individuals and any support towards this noble course is greatly appreciated.”
