Synopsis

In THE GREEN BELT MOVEMENT, founder, Wangari Maathai, tells its story: why it started, how it operates and where it is going. She includes the philosophy behind it, its challenges and objectives and the specific steps involved in starting a similar grassroots environmental and social justice organization. THE GREEN BELT MOVEMENT is the inspiring story of people working at the grassroots level to improve their environment and their country. Their story offers ideas about a new and hopeful future for Africa and the rest of the world. Wangari Maathai is the founder of the Green Belt Movement and the first woman to earn a doctorate in biology in East Africa. A recipient of numerous awards for her work on environmental and social issues, she was elected to Parliament by an overwhelming majority in 2003 and is currently the Assistant Secretary for Environment, Wildlife and Natural Resources in the new democratically elected Kenyan government. She lives in Nairobi, Kenya.

Depressed about the environment? Read this book!! 4. Februar 2005
Von Lisa Merton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Green Belt Movement by Wangari Maathai is a wonderful, informative and user-friendly book that gives a good sense of the movement's history and the person behind it. Just as Maathai in her work likes to keep her hands in the dirt planting trees, in her book she cuts directly to the meat and bones of what the Green Belt Movement is about and how it functions practically on the ground.

The book illustrates both the work of the Green Belt Movement and the philosophical motivations behind it, making it a useful and applicable guide to any person or organization interested or involved in a grassroots, holistic, and sustainable approach to changing the environmental and social threads of our world.

Throughout the text Maathai's directness, integrity and humor shines through, revealing the dynamic and rich personality behind this inspirational movement.

"I assumed that all people working in public service loved the people they served, were accountable and transparent, and had integrity. That was part of the culture that had been inculcated in me by my parents and teachers. It was part of my personality, character and conscience. I have since learned that such assumptions are shared by few." This statement is vital to an understanding of who Wangari Maathai is and is one of the reasons she won the Nobel Peace Prize. She has always had great integrity and she has never been willing to compromise it.

Throughout the book there are passages that let the reader know that this person who is writing is brilliant, funny and also deeply modest. Wangari Maathai is an extraordinary person and this book provides a good sense of the hard work that went into creating the Green Belt Movement. I recommend it.

GREEN BELT MOVEMENT 7. Februar 2005
Von peacenik - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book to be an enlightening and educating account of the background and work of the current Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Wangari Maathai. THE GREEN BELT MOVEMENT is currently the only volume that provides as much insight on this topic.

This book aptly illustrates the practical effect a visionary can have towards the cause of unifying and balancing the degraded social, cultural and biological environment that we inhabit, by it's ample portrayal of the life, philosophy and focus of Prof. Maathai.

I highly recommend this book.

Absolutely fascinating work 7. Februar 2005
Von SBT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book took me into the grassroots level work of the newest Nobel Peace Prize winner. I was glad to get a glimpse into what the world is just recognizing as the new frontier - the hope that comes from action at the local level which makes real course changes in our world as a whole. I enjoyed the very practical outline of this movement's accomplishments and connections to the growing consciousness for earth's slow, steady salvation.

Green Belt Movement inspiring! 4. Februar 2005
Von Davy Davidson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Wangari Maathai represents the possibility that all of us can make a difference, if we only make a commitment. THE GREEN BELT MOVEMENT is an important introduction to her work. She has inspired thousands and I am one who looks to her example - especially when we environmentalists feel despair in the current U.S. political climate.
