Africa's Green Future: Nurturing the vision of Wangari Maathai cover
Descrição Wangari Maathai (1940-2011) spent her life advocating for social justice and ecosystem preservation in post-colonial Africa. As founder of the Green Belt Movement, she encouraged Kenyan women to plant trees as a tool for environmental conservation, poverty reduction, and empowerment. Wangari was a Yale McCluskey Visiting Fellow for Conservation (2002), received a Yale Honorary Doctorate (L.D.H. ‘04) and was a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate (2004).

In a two-day event, the Yale community will honor her legacy with the screening of a documentary film about her life and a series of panel discussions about the key environmental issues pressing the region.
