Kenyan School Children Plant Trees to Avert Climate Change

As the 22nd Conference of Parties (COP 22) to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change opens in Marrakesh, Morocco, on November 7, in far away Kenya some school pupils are making an impact by planting trees – one tree at a time — away from the pomp and glamor.

The pupils of Kiserian Primary School, located in a poor neighborhood outside the bustling Kenyan capital Nairobi, are making a difference while providing a sustainable solution to a global problem.

The active members of the school’s environment club initiated an innovative environmental program some years ago, aimed at curbing the adverse effects of climate change. They are actively involved in planting trees, while also tending a community tree nursery, where hundreds of tree seedlings are grown and shared with the local community.
