Elizabeth Wathuti gets the „Best Tought Award“
Every year the BEYOND-Festival awards the "Best Tought Award" of the FUTURE DESIGN-Symposium. This award was given to Elizabeth Wanjiru Wathuti, Kenyan environmental and climate activist and founder of the Green Generation Initiative, which encourages young people to love nature and be environmentally conscious at a young age. She has now planted 30,000 tree seedlings in Kenya with her initiative.
"With the award of Elizabeth Wanjiru Wathuti, we honour not only her commitment and initiative, but also the young people on our planet who, day after day, are committed to our future and to living together with all other actors in our Biosphere Earth. These young people challenge us every day to take on our share of responsibility for what we have in common," says festival founder and director Ludger Pfanz, explaining the reason for this honour
