The Nairobi Green Week, a first for Kenya’s capital city and east Africa’s trade and business hub, will be a series of activities and events run during the week of the Green Business Africa Summit & Expo 2010.

In his New Year’s message on the stroke of midnight on 1 January, president Mwai Kibaki boldly declared 2010 to be Green Year for Kenya. “Let us make 2010 the green year for Kenya”, he said, signalling reinvigorated efforts toward making the east African country “a green economy”.

The Nairobi Green Week will be a joint effort and a strategic partnership between several institutions and partners. The climax of the Week will be the World Environment Day festivities in Nairobi on June 5, 2010 immediately after GBASE2010.

UNEP Green Economy Coalition and 2 Nobel laureates will share insights with participants at the Green Business Africa Summit & Expo 2010 during Nairobi Green Week between June 2 and 4 to chart a green economy path for Africa! Join them.

"Dear Colleague and Partner,

With rapidly increasing demands for sustainability in the business environment in a world limited by finite resources, green business and issues around climate change are emerging as crucial for Africa. Accordingly, Nairobi, Kenya?s capital city, will be hosting two Nobel laureates during the Nairobi Green Week between June 2 and 5 under the theme is "Sustainable Business as Vehicle for Africa''s Economic Growth and Social Uplift". The Green Business Africa Summit & Expo 2010 (GBASE2010) will be the main event under the Nairobi Green Week.

What's more, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) will usher in a new era of the Global Green Economy in Africa during the largest and most unique such gathering in Africa! Nairobi Green Week promises to be the largest event that connects Africa to Global Green Economy!

The climax of the Week will be the World Environment Day festivities in Nairobi on June 5, 2010 immediately after GBASE2010 during which Kenya Association of Manufacturers will lead its membership in a massive tree planting exercise along the boarder of Nairobi National Park to prevent urban encroachment under the Nairobi Greenline Project.

GBASE2010 will be split into three days of specialist sessions under four different streams covering all aspects of sustainable business ?
