“There is a huge knowledge gap in the green economy. We are working with like-minded organizations to creatively deliver curated content especially for youth and mid-career professionals. For the Green Economy to become a reality, we need to create awareness and build skills among young people to generate the requisite talent pipeline. Climate literacy is what digital skills were in the early 2000’s. Every young person should get some form of green skills. ” – Sellah Bogonko
“The Green Economy is creating unprecedented opportunities – take the time to research and learn as much as you can about climate action so you can be prepared to fully take advantage of the opportunities.” – Bilha Ndirangu
