Wangari Maathai

Quotations 4 Wangari Maathai Muta

“Education, if it means anything, should not take people away from the land, but instill in them even more respect for it, because educated people are in a position to understand what is being lost. The future of the planet concerns all of us, and all of us should do what we can to protect it. As I told the foresters, and the women, you don't need a diploma to plant a tree.”

Wangari Maathai (Kenyan environmental political activist and Nobel Peace Prize; author of Unbowed)
