How Hope Raisers Uses Digital Storytelling to Build Community Climate Resilience in Nairobi, Kenya | Daniel Onyango

Season 1 | Episode 4
41m | Apr 30, 2021

In this episode, I discuss a bit about community climate change adaptation and the importance of incorporating the youth voice in decision-making with Daniel Onyango, the founder of The Hope Raisers Initiative. The Hope Raisers Initiative uses arts, culture, and sports to amplify the youth voice in the neighbourhood of Korogocho in Nairobi, Kenya. Through the organization, community members get opportunities to creatively transform public spaces in their neighbourhood whether that is through music, murals, or matatus (i.e. buses).

In this episode, you'll learn about:

  • How their Future Yetu program is breaking down barriers between the public and public policymakers
  • How digital storytelling can be an important tool in addressing climate change
  • How Hope Raisers leveraged local transportation to gather community insights
  • Why Daniel thinks integrating youth in city-building and climate adaptation initiatives is important
  • and much more!
