Digital Participation : The Green Belt Movement by Wangari Maathai
This video introduces the green belt movement in Kenya and Wangari Maathai.
Wangari Maathai was the first women to earn Ph.d degree in Eastern Africa.
She is also a first woman to receive the Novel Peace Prize in Africa.
She started the green belt mvoement to sustain its environment and empower women.
This is the movmenet against the drying up of river. Environemental issues affect African people seriously because
most countries in Africa depend on agriculture to make life. I thought this video is intersting because this is the nonviolent movement in Africa, in which people actied to change the environment by themselves.
