My company promotes tender love and care (TLC) for the environment by creating awareness; providing a platform where different people from all over the globe can share experiences and solutions towards environmental conservation and sustainable development and supporting and organizing events and projects linked to the same
The YES Switzerland course was a brilliant way to start the year 2015, with new experiences, new friends and definitely the beginning of a new exciting journey in advocating for sustainable development and environmental conservation! I understood very crucial concepts such as sustainable development, land use, systems thinking; and learnt skills and practices as well as different tools like the business & iceberg model which I now use in assessing situations and deriving solutions. Due to the course’s diverse nature, I interacted with wonderful and skilled people from different parts of the globe who I am still in contact with, hence continuing to share experiences and materials necessary for our day-to-day activities. The experience was great as it also exposed me to different traditions, cultures, beliefs and religions. Also, the personal coaching sessions taught me to believe more in myself and to trigger my personal creativity as well as to be positive and innovative hence enriching my personal development.
I believe the YES course has equipped me to be a young confident leader and I admit that it is more than a lifetime opportunity which encouraged, motivated and inspired me to take action in promoting sustainability with a mission to enthuse positive change. I look forward to establishing a YES Kenya chapter which is an initiative I have taken, which will aim to actively engage YES Kenya alumni in creating a deeper sensitization and impact in Kenya by promoting and supporting projects linked to sustainability and also create awareness on the YES course to encourage others to participate.
