Summary From her humble roots in rural Kenya to international acclaim as the woman who planted a million trees, Wangari Maathai's life and can-do attitude are inspirational. With humour and humility she relates her life story and describes how some of Africa's most disadvantaged women significantly improved their environment. Wangari challenges her audience to get involved at all levels against environmental degradation, crippling debt in the developing world, corruption and poverty. A group of inspired teachers gather after the talk to think about ways in which they can take these messages back into their schools
