Statement from organizer:

Innovent Africa Limited (IAL) is an organization dedicated to developing creative and exciting ways to engage our population in becoming environmentally conscious. We aim to provide new avenues to our demographic while encouraging them to play an active role in climate issues. Our Inspiration is a quote by US President Barack Obama on rebuilding our world:

“The Critical Truth is, the Nation that leads in the creation of a clean energy economy will be the nation that leads the 21st Century’s global economy.”

Even though our continent is the lowest contributor of substances that are causing a shift in climate, we are the most affected by these changes. IAL’s Eco-Green planned initiatives revolve around:

  • Creating a new platform to inspire new green conversations
  • Investing in green socio-economic projects
  • Communicating green living options, green values and green inspiration
  • Inspiring Africa’s youth and young adults to play an active role in environmental conservation
  • Informing without causing paranoia or fanatical behaviour
  • Providing Eco-Green impact for Kenya and Africa
