From April 2nd to April 5th 2024, Ecotourism Kenya opened its doors to a cohort of aspiring leaders and change-makers for an immersive Leadership and Mentorship Training Week. Over the course of four days, participants engaged in a rich tapestry of professional development and sustainability sessions, aimed at equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in their professional journeys while championing environmental stewardship.

Participants gained insights into building strong interpersonal relationships, navigating workplace challenges, and nurturing their own holistic well-being. Additionally, sessions on school-work transition and cultural respect provided valuable guidance for navigating diverse environments with grace and sensitivity.
Sustainability Sensitization: Complementing the personal development track, the training also included sustainability sensitization sessions designed to deepen participants’ understanding of responsible tourism and environmental conservation. Through sessions on the fundamentals of responsible tourism, youth and climate change, environment management and awareness, and youth and biodiversity conservation, participants were empowered to become stewards of the planet. They explored practical strategies for integrating sustainability principles into their professional endeavors and fostering positive environmental change within their communities.

Throughout the week, participants were engaged in interactive discussions, hands-on activities, and collaborative exercises, fostering a supportive learning environment where ideas flourished and connections were forged. The training was not merely an educational experience but a transformative journey, empowering participants to become catalysts for positive change in their respective fields.
