IDEAS For Us Kenya was founded in 2020 by young environmental leaders from WildNow Foundation, a conservation organization in Kenya that works to advance sustainability and protect endangered species. They are using the IDEAS model to expand their environmental education and action efforts in their community in the form of Hive meetings, tree planting projects, permaculture programs, and elephant conservation initiatives. They are working to mobilize young people in learning about our planet and taking action to save it!
