ABSTRACT:
This article focuses on the activities of The Green Belt Movement , the ecofeminist movement of Wangari Maathi, the Kenyan Writer and Noble laureate of 2004. The argument the Green Belt Movement as a movement with strategies for action directed towards an ecological revolution and sustainable development. This conception is essential to an examination of Maathai and the Green Belt Movement in Kenya who use tree planting as an activity to advocate for social change, ecological revolution and empowerment for women. The Green Belt Movement’s goal is to establish public green belts and fuel wood plots by local people, especially women in the spirit of self-reliance and empowerment as well as to combat soil erosion. The movement over a period of nearly thirty years has mobilized poor women to plant an estimated thirty million trees.
