Nairobi River Cleanup Supported by National Museums

The National Museums of Kenya had over 50 staff take part in the Nairobi River Cleaning Drive that took place on August 29, 2008.

The drive, an activity organized by the Global Peace Festival and sponsored by both public and private institutions, was the second this year by the same organization. The clean-up project is organized to promote environmental sustainability in Nairobi. GPF Kenya’s organizing team has been developing future action plans towards 2012, expecting the project to be a crucial strategy for achieving the 7th goal of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

The National Museums of Kenya has been at the forefront of environmental conservation efforts with numerous resources and initiatives developed towards research, awareness creation, and policy formulation in environmental issues.

Managing 22 museums, and over 100 sites and monuments throughout the country, the National Museums of Kenya sees the environment as key to the preservation of Kenya’s natural and cultural history. Such preservation ranks high on a list of the institution’s core values, which also include protecting and conserving the environment in accordance with national and international obligations. The National Museums of Kenya strives to conserve the environment all around the country wherever it has a presence, and does so in cooperation with the surrounding communities. The museums themselves are in conservation areas and therefore contribute to the overall national efforts toward conserving and protecting the natural environment.

We therefore are proud to have been part of this important conservation exercise in collaboration with the Global Peace Festival.
