Global Climate Strike

The 100% Renewable Energy March

Last year 2018, the president of Kenya, his Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, committed to 100% Renewable Energy by 2020 which is only 4 months away. Even though the country has done well towards realizing this target, there is about 10% left to achieve the 100%RE for Kenya. The young people of this country must therefore rise to the occasion and show support to the Head of State to honour his promise to the Kenyan people, a promise which will also ensure that Kenya surpasses its targets in its Nationally Determined Contributions as communicated to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It is in this regard that: African Youth Initiative on Climate Change (AYICC), Open Society Initiative for East Africa (OSIEA), Action Aid International, Society for International Development, Amnesty International, Henrich Boell Foundation, deCOALonize, Natural Justice, CIAT, Greenpeace Africa, 350 Africa, 350Kenya, Save Lamu, KeNRA and other like-minded organisations/institutions plan to organise a march – THE 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY MARCH to support and remind the government about its own commitment at this opportune time. The march targets at least 1000 participants on the streets of Nairobi City.
