In observing the 10th anniversary, Eco-Ethics Kenya takes great pride to have joined hands with the Kilifi community in coordinating the2015 World Oceans Day. The celebrations took place at Baobab Beach, off the Serene Bofa Estates in Kilifi Town. The color and pomp was all courtesy of officials from the Kilifi County Government, civil society, private sector, academia, the young and old, all inclined at domesticating the ideals of ocean conservation in Kenya. The event kicked off with a procession at the vibrant Kibaoni Centre, which was flagged off by Prof. Rajab Mohammed (VC Pwani University). The frenzy of excitement created by the procession and the Kilifi community captured the local enthusiasm to conserve a resource so well treasured in the County.
At the venue, Where Talent Lives, a youth-based NGO in Kilifi, staged a symbolic beach cleanup to demonstrate the significance of the youth in ocean conservation. The Rescue Team, Kenya Scouts Association, Kenya Red Cross, Mbaraki Youth Group together with the colorful schools of Kilifi setup the venue. Mr. Wekesa and DJ Nasty ignited the entertainment. The guest of honor of the day was Mr. Earnest Maina, the Regional Coordinator of NEMA in Coast.
Mundus Maris, a Belgium non-profit organization, partnered with Eco- Ethics in the WOD celebrations to promote artistic expressions of Eco-club in schools.
