ROTARY CLUB OF NAIROBI PLANT YOUR AGE TREE EVENT

It is with the vision of ensuring a healthy and wealthy environment for all and the mission of promoting and enhancing the quality of the environment through demonstration and facilitation of practices towards sustainable livelihoods that the Rotary Club of Nairobi (RCN) team joined together in a Plant Your Age tree event on 18th of November 2017 at Karura Forest to continue championing for the same.

The event marked the importance of tree planting activities in achieving sustainable development goals and fostering education for sustainable development. It saw the RCN members present plant 200 seedlings on an approved site at Karura Forest. Additionally, the RCN entered into a three year agreement with Kenya Forest Service (KFS) Karura that would see KFS maintain the seedlings/saplings for 3 years. A highlight from a message from Rtn. Dorcas Otieno was that forests form a significant part of the biophysical environment, and the interconnected of nature implies that increasing forest cover results in a better, cleaner and healthier environment this leading to sustainability.

The event was held under the Green Rotary Four Way Test banner which was able to be elaborated linking the significance of trees and increasing forest cover. The answers to the Four Way Test plainly revealed that increasing forest cover goes far beyond the natural environment, to address other essential components of a sustainable society such as enhancing the economy, while at the same inculcating societal values of peace, harmony with each other and our natural environment.

All Rotarians were reminded that the environment has and continues to change due to increased human activities that have contributed to environmental injustice therefore it is everyone’s responsibility to stand up for its defense; exactly what the RCN district family has been doing recommending the continuation of the same towards accomplishing sustainable development vision.

Peace And Love is a collage of poetry, music and dance – which invites the audience to find, understand and celebrate the self in order to enjoy peace and love with life and each other. The journey through each of the forms in production (poetry, music and dance) trails the story of coming of age from a point of pain, loss, despair and confusion to a point of clarity, growth, hope, peace and love. The production is a metaphor for different stories of our times; from personal experiences, the economy and state of affairs, to corrosion of culture and morality. It all culminates in a powerful resonance with the need to keep hope alive, the need to seek forgiveness and growth, the need to foster peace and love.

The Prevail Arts Company production features poetry written by Joan Sikand performed by Nick Ndeda, Fridah Muhindi and Laura Ekumbo. Live music performed by Serro and Checkmate Mido that borrows a lot from the seventies retro culture webbed together by contemporary dance by Bridgetta Ikwara. The production is produced and directed by Kigondu Martin.
