Video Exclusive! 40 Million Trees and a Nobel Peace Prize: One Woman’s Story
Founded in 1977 by the brilliant and deeply compassionate Kenyan activist Dr. Wangari Maathai, The Green Belt Movement has profoundly changed the physical and social landscape of Kenya...and it all began with planting trees.
See how Wangari Maathai became the first African woman, and first environmentalist, to win the Nobel Prize for Peace. Alternative Channel is proud to host this exclusive excerpt from the powerful and inspiring documentary Roots of Change: The Vision of Wangari Maathai by Lisa Merton and Alan Dater.
An exclusive interview with The Green Belt Movement's leader Wangari Maathai will be presented at the Alternative Channel Forum 2008.
Can't make it to Barcelona on April 30th for the Forum? Join us for a live blog of the event starting at 9am CET (3am EST) and lasting all day. Will include complete coverage of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta MENCHÚ TUM's special lecture on communication and social transformation.
