Beyond My tribe Climate Fellowship 2023

The Beyond My Tribe Climate Fellowship 2023 is a transformative event aimed at addressing climate change and promoting environmental sustainability. The fellowship will culminate in a grand tree planting ceremony, where 250,000 trees will be planted on a 5-acre farm in Njoro, Nakuru County. The event, scheduled from August 20th to 26th, 2023, offers participants a unique camping fellowship experience combined with climate-smart training.

This fellowship offers a unique opportunity to participate in climate action, gain valuable knowledge, and contribute to environmental sustainability. By joining this fellowship, you become part of a growing community dedicated to combating climate change and creating a greener, more sustainable future. Together, we will create a forest orchard that benefits both the environment and the community, fostering a cyclic economy, promoting biodiversity, and providing economic opportunities through fruit harvesting.

Core importance of the Program:

  • Environmental Conservation: The fellowship aims to raise awareness about the importance of environmental conservation and mitigating the effects of climate change through tree planting initiatives. By planting 250,000 trees, we aim to contribute significantly to restoring ecosystems, reducing carbon emissions, and combating deforestation.
  • Capacity Building: The program offers climate-smart training to equip participants with knowledge and skills in sustainable practices, such as renewable energy, waste management, and conservation agriculture. This capacity building empowers individuals to become agents of change in their communities and take meaningful action towards climate resilience.
  • Fruit Tree Orchard: What sets our Climate Fellowship apart is the incorporation of fruit trees in our tree planting campaign. One-third of the 250,000 trees will be fruit trees, creating a vibrant forest orchard where apiaries can thrive and the community can benefit from an abundance of fresh fruits. This unique feature not only enhances biodiversity but also promotes sustainable agriculture and food security.
  • Community Engagement: The Climate Fellowship provides a platform for individuals, organizations, and registered BMT volunteers to come together and actively participate in addressing climate change. It fosters community engagement, collaboration, and networking, promoting a sense of collective responsibility towards environmental stewardship.
  • Benefits to the Community: The forest orchard created through the Climate Fellowship brings numerous benefits to the community. Firstly, it provides a habitat for pollinators, including bees, contributing to the preservation of biodiversity and ecosystem balance. Secondly, the fruit trees offer economic opportunities for the community, as the harvested fruits can be sold or consumed locally, contributing to income generation and improved nutrition.
  • Key Events of the Program:

    • Climate-Smart Training Sessions: Engaging and interactive training sessions will cover various topics, including climate change awareness, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, waste management, conservation agriculture, and cyclic economy. Experts in the field will facilitate these sessions, providing participants with in-depth knowledge and practical tools to implement sustainable practices in their communities and daily lives.
    • Tree Planting Ceremony: The highlight of the fellowship will be the tree planting ceremony, where participants will actively contribute to the planting of 250,000 trees. The incorporation of fruit trees ensures that the forest orchard not only benefits the environment but also provides the community with sustainable sources of fresh fruits. This fosters food security, promotes a healthy lifestyle, and creates economic opportunities for the community.
    • Camping Fellowship: Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a unique camping experience, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie. During the camping fellowship, participants will learn about apiculture (beekeeping) and its role in supporting ecosystems and promoting biodiversity. They will also gain insights into sustainable farming practices and the cultivation of fruit trees, empowering them to make a positive impact in their own communities.
