Wangari Maathai Day/ Africa Environment Day

The celebration of Wangari Maathai Day is in recognition of the work and life of the late Nobel Laureate, Professor Wangari Maathai, who dedicated her life to promoting environmental conservation and sustainable development in Africa. In January 2012, the African Union (AU) adopted a decision calling for the joint celebrations of the African Environment Day and Wangari Maathai Day in order to pay tribute to the late Nobel Laureate's green legacy.
