How to build the next natural Wonder of the World

The Great Green Wall is a reforestation initiative that will span the width of Africa.

This African-led movement aims to grow an 8,000km belt of trees, vegetation and fertile land across the Sahel to transform millions of lives living on the climate change frontline.

We can learn lessons from past efforts about how to mobilise ecopreneurship for the future.

This interactive map shows the location of trees planted by the Green Belt Movement across Kenya.

Using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) we record the location of the tree nurseries, and monitor the progress of the trees planted to ensure high survival rates. Mapping tree-planting sites ensures that our efforts are helping to restore critical watersheds.

Click on the map to zoom in and see the planting locations and information about the number of trees planted.

Wangari Maathai (19402011) was the founder of the Green Belt Movement and theWangari Maathai Institute.Her life was a series of firsts: the first woman to gain a Ph.D. in East and Central Africa; the first female chair of a department at the University of Nairobi; and the first African woman and the first environmentalist to receive the Nobel Peace Prize (2004).
