An Electrifying Time

I was sitting in the room and l just couldn’t believe the energy. Three people brainstorming intensely on the Kenya chapter meeting activities. Now l sit back and smile. It was intense. In fact it was like the whole of the PACJA office was in the meeting because the meeting kept drawing people in who added thoughts on activities that should be done for the Kenya Chapter.  

Indeed, this is the time for Africa. I have never seen an activity excite members like this. Creativity at its best and adrenaline so high that you literally feel the rush and electricity when you get into the room. Yes, this was the setting yesterday afternoon as the Caravan of Hope, Kenya Chapter was being discussed. They want it African. They will tell their stories of adaptation and mitigation the African way. They will discuss Climate Justice the African way and they want to be heard. I also suspect, they will be heard indeed. You can’t ignore energy like this. Can you picture the energy once the caravan starts?

And so the countdown begins…9 weeks to go…
