I am Sidney Opiyo from Kenya. My work mostly entails youth-led environmental conservation, landscape and nature restoration, marine protection, climate-smart farming systems, environmental policy, and environmental journalism. I also have a deep interest in working with youth at the grassroots level, youth-inclusive governance and policies, environmental storytelling, and climate action. I am a climate advocate and an environmental defender, working to champion meaningful youth engagement for Climate action with a background in Environmental Studies and Community Development. I have experience in community organizing, climate communication, environmental conservation and protection, and community resource mobilization.

Currently, I am a Co_founder and Projects Officer at Train My Generation CBO ( TMG) and my work involves planning and managing impact projects at the organization. At TMG, we believe that sharing images will enable the world to understand why and how they will need to conserve the environment and make sustainable decisions while going about their daily lives. We share stories that enable relevant sharing of knowledge on everything nature and wildlife. We create awareness of conservation and climate change issues through photography. 

 I have previously worked as a Volunteer at Kenya Environmental Action Network (KEAN) where I have been involved in global campaigns on environmental storytelling. I was able to lead campaigns using storytelling to communicate about environmental issues and how all stakeholders can participate in achieving the goals of environmental sustainability.

Hi Sidney,

Thanks for sharing about this brilliant event! Are there any recordings perhaps of the conference sessions that you could share with us?

I was also wondering if you add a summary of the deep dive article with us here because the link isn't working for me. Many thanks in advance!

Hi Thirza,

Could you try again, I guess there was a lot of traffic on the site but it should be working now. I will try and have the follow up posts as well so you would possibly consider subscribing to the blog so you are notified when I post.
