Japheth Orieny

Student Activist – Kenya

I am a student studying Environmental Studies and Community Development at Kenyatta University in Kenya and the founder of Taka Mali Afrika Incorporated. I am passionate about the environment and sustainable development. My enthusiasm for nature and the need to protect and fight for it by giving it a voice was inspired by my childhood. Growing up in the slums of Mathare, I witnessed first-hand the high level of solid waste pollution, its effects and the poor living standards of the residents in the area. These pushed me to find a way to turn these challenges around and help community members utilize the resources around them. By focusing on the strengths of the community members and of the community at large rather than on what’s wrong in the community, we can empower and build capacities of individuals’ and neighborhoods. I am also an Environmental and Climate Change trained Non Violent Direct Action (NVDA) Activist Volunteer with Greenpeace Africa.

GlobalConscience.World Ambassadors

We know how committed our Ambassadors are to being part of the solution to what scientists and economists consider to be one of the world’s most crucial problems. Which is why we provide each of our Ambassadors with information, guidance, and tools they can use to become effective climate change influencers on social media. Our Ambassadors help publicize the GlobalConscience.World message and share educational resources any way they can.

They use their individual skills to educate others and show them what each of us can do, as individuals, to fight global warming from our own homes. Our ultimate goal is to have a worldwide network of Ambassadors who communicate with each other and who can help put pressure on corporations and governments to do what is right, because we believe the changes the world needs will happen only with the support of concerned citizens in every country. And that means every one of our Ambassadors can know he or she is not only part of the solution, but a leader in helping to create a better future for everyone.
