We are pleased to have The Ministry of Environment and Forestry sponsoring this year’s BAKE Awards in the Best Environment and New Blog Categories.
The Ministry of Environment is a government ministry mandated to protect, conserve and manage the environment and natural resources for socio-economic development. It envisions a clean, healthy, safe and sustainably managed environment and Natural resources by facilitating good governance in the protection, restoration, conservation, development and management of the environment and natural resources for equitable and sustainable development.
The Ministry of Environment’s partnership with BAKE is aimed at extending opportunities and connecting the blogging community to issues affecting the environment. In a statement by the office of the PS, the ministry commented that bloggers are fundamental in bringing to light information about the environment.
“The Ministry of environment saw it necessary to support the community, as bloggers have the fundamental voice needed to getting information about the environment and climate change to their audience. Through this partnership, we hope to drive more conversation online and educate Kenyans on how, as individuals or community they can effect a sustainable environment for future generations.”
In the last year, we have partnered with the ministry to train content creators on green growth and climate change issues in Nairobi, Kisumu and Naivasha.
We are excited to have the Ministry of Environment partnering with us to sponsor the Awards. We are in the last leg of the blog awards journey as we anticipate to crown the winners in the gala event that is to be held on Saturday 22nd June 2019 at The Utalii Hotel, Thika Road, Nairobi.
