As part of a resounding global call to end fossil fuels, Kenyan youth are joining the rest of the world to lead a #EndFossilFuels mobilization event demanding a rapid, equitable and just end to the use of fossil fuels. This movement, which has galvanized millions of people around the world, is a prelude to the Ambition Climate Summit in New York and aims to highlight the devastating consequences of current emissions.

The action was carried out in Nairobi by the Planet One – Ubunifu Hub community, in collaboration with Greenpeace Africa and Create 2030 volunteers.

“For the thousands of young Africans marching to end the fossil fuel expansion and neocolonial extraction that deepens the plight of our communities, this is a fight for our survival. This is a fight for our lives and our well-being. And it’s a fight we must win. We, the youth, are raising our voices not only for Kenya, but for the entire continent. We demand that our leaders end the use and extraction of fossil fuels: the only way to have a future on a livable planet,” said Robert Ruhiu – Hub Ubunifu spokesperson.

Worldwidethis mobilization takes multiple forms, including a monumental “March to end fossil fuels”, planned for September 17 during the Ambition Climate Summit in New York.

On Saturday, September 16, at Planet One – Ubunifu Hub in Nairobi, Kenya, a series of exciting events are planned:

Campaign Sketch: At 1:00 p.m., a thought-provoking play, organized and performed by the youth of Ubunifu Hub, will vividly depict the consequences of the use of fossil fuels. This theatrical performance will also appeal to leaders to save our planet. The sketch will be broadcast live on Ubunifu Hub social media channels and should last an hour.

Activism Art Unveiling: A powerful work of art, created by young artists from Ubunifu Hub, will be unveiled. This artwork serves as an unfiltered message against fossil fuels and will provide a striking backdrop for event attendees to capture poignant images.

Twitter storm: Dozens of dedicated Greenpeace volunteers will lead a digital mobilization effort. This campaign aims to mobilize Kenyan communities online, raise awareness of the ongoing climate crisis and encourage active engagement and sharing. All messages will resonate with the theme “No more fossil fuels”.

March: In collaboration with Create 2030, a campaign walk will begin at Hub Ubunifu located at Cedar Court – Garden Estate, Nairobi. Attendees at the center will voice their demand for an end to fossil fuels, with a photoshoot capturing their commitment to environmental protection.

“Create 2030 uses creativity and innovation as the tools needed to eliminate fossil fuels. Our generation is working to change the mindset of so many people in Kenya and Africa as a whole who do not believe that the climate crisis is a real problem. Our message is clear: “Don’t be fossil fools!” » » — Truphena Muthoni – Create 2030 spokesperson.
