Highlights from Africa Climate Week

September 13, 2023

Last week, representatives from the Goldman Environmental Prize attended Africa Climate Week in Nairobi, Kenya. The week was a kickoff for many upcoming climate events this fall, and an opportunity to convene regional Prize winners as well as those unable to travel to the US during the Covid-19 pandemic.

At Africa Climate Summit and Africa Climate Week, international delegates and members of civil society convened in Nairobi.

Goldman Prize winners Chibeze Ezekiel (Ghana, 2020), Ikal Angelei (Kenya, 2012), and Edward Loure (Tanzania, 2016) met in person.

Goldman Prize winners had the opportunity to create connections and build community with NGO staff members, policymakers, and climate leaders.
