Inculcate Environmental Education at Early ages for Culture Change
Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Forestry KeriakoTobiko has called for inclusion of sustainable environmental education in the curriculum at primary school level to ensure environmental sustainability and culture change.
The CS spoke when he met the proprietor of a Funkidz a Small Medium Enterprise (SME) CiiruWaweruWaithaka who made a courtesy call on him to discuss issues of sustainable industrial innovation in Environment protection.
Mr. Tobiko noted that the upcoming United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA 4) was an appropriate platform for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’S) such as Funkidz to showcase local innovation to wider audiences.
Funkidz has adopted a circular economy model and uses waste material from farmlands, schools, offices and homes to make furniture for children.
The government of Kenya has prioritized manufacturing and affordable housing as key pillars of the President’s Big Four Agenda towards uplifting the standard of living by 2030. It is instructive for industries to use local innovations to achieve the government priorities.
The Big Four Agenda relies on the availability of raw material that would guarantee the production of products that are sustainable and affordable.
