Update From Julia

After a long time away in Germany, Alaska and Kenya I'll finally get back to Edinburgh tomorrow. I've had a wonderful time in Alaska meeting so many old and new friends after 2 years away.

In Kenya I was working with the project Mikoko Pamoja, which does mangrove forest conservation for carbon credits. My current project here is focused on the introduction of improved cooking stoves in 2 villages in order to reduce the use of mangroves as firewood and thereby prevent more carbon from being released into the atmosphere.

At the same time I was doing my best to share our current educational project KES (Knowledge Empowerment System) from my Rotary Club with as many people as possible. I managed to share it with the schools in Gazi and Makongeni as well as with two schools in Msambweni (Vingujini and KAG school). I was also lucky enough to share KES with the wonderful organization "Home Street Home" in Makongeni and to make a connection with the local rotary club in Diani Beach. In every place the time was, as always, way too short.

However, I'm very thankful that I could spend this beautiful summer with so many great people, adventures and great projects that will hopefully help change the world. 

I'm excited to be back in Edinburgh tomorrow and to see all of you Edinburgh friends again! As always, for further information about KES or other educational material and tools you can use to Change the world, check our website - photos coming soon! I've been a bit slow with organising recently ;)

Act as a team without boundaries to empower others, share free educational resources, identify opportunities, and provide support & encouragement...
