Kenyan Hip-Hop Video on Bicycling & CO2/Climate Change [VIDEO]

  • Published on February 24th, 2011 by

Did someone say totally awesome video? I did. And apparently some others, as this hip hop group of Kenyan teenagers from the slums of Nairobi, Wafalme, won the “1 minute to save the world” video contest.

“Most of us just sit and wait for the governments to take action about climate change,” one of the filmmakers, Dickson Oyugi, said. “Wafalme instead think that together we can, with small actions in our daily life, make a difference. The most simple and innovative solution is coming from a group of kids in the slums of Nairobi: using bicycles instead of cars!”

Nice. I agree.
