Planting mangroves by the sea
Joyce Koech, Co-founder of the Blue Earth organization explains in the video below how her organization is combatting climate change by planting mangroves near Mombasa.
Started back in March 2020, the Blue Earth Organization has grown into an effective youth-led organization. They emphasize keeping indigenous communities and youth at the heart of everything they do. Mangroves create a coastal defence system that absorbs even more carbon than a rainforest and is essential for maintaining biodiversity. This initiative is also raising awareness amongst the youth and mobilizing people to take matters into their own hands and join the global climate movement.
