Kenya urgently need to build bridges between peace and planet. This is because increasing poverty has led to overgrazing and over cultivation of land. This has resulted to deadly conflicts. Urbanization has seen natural forests and sites been sold or turned into commercial ventures. This has denied communities an opportunity to understand the link between peace and planet. African cultural artefacts that are embedded with cultural values that foster the connection between the peace and planet have also been exported or smuggled outside the country, hence denying the younger generation an opportunity to learn about this important connection. We are also losing at an alarming rate people who understand the true nature of the connection between peace and planet due to old age. Without sufficient records their memories and stories are gone forever. Globalization has also dealt a big blow to this link. Globalization is not sensitive to the inter-connectedness between peace and planet.
In a sense, we are in the process of losing the link between peace and planet earth, hence the need to build bridges. Neither modern school education nor the State has the capacity to give or replace this connection. It is vital that we bring together organizations to reflect on this challenge. Collective impact is relevant to bridging bridges between peace and planet because it creates an environment that encourages shared agendas, measurements and communication in this innovative realm of evolving technology.
