“It is the people who must save the environment. It is the people who must make their leaders change. And we cannot be intimidated.
So we must stand up for what we believe in.”
Taking Root tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy – a movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration.
