About the lecture
Wangari Maathai, the 2004 Nobel Prize Winner in Peace has given talk on “The Environment, Democracy & Peace: A Critical Link”. It has been organized by Sustainability Science Center, University of Copenhagen as part of Copenhagen Sustainability Lecture Series.

Event experience: It has been an honor to listen to Wangari Maathai and her efforts in building peace & sustainable environment in parts of Africa. She has talked about the green movement where empowering communities was used to provide solutions of various social problems. There are enormous challenges faced by Africa and she has highlighted the need for proper democracy in eradicating those challenges. She emphasized need for execution rather than going for developing many methods and tools. The biggest problem in her view is that people are too afraid to think out of box and act on it.
