From the Department of Smart Social Media:
“Me And My Bike” is a video created by Wafalme, a group of inspired Kenyan teens who communicate various messages through hip-hop. They are also known for creating “Trash Is Cash,” a video offering recycling solutions for their neighborhood, which lacks trash collection - despite the fact that 1.5 tons of trash per day is dumped on their land from Nairobi.
Wafalme’s pro-bike video won the “1 Minute To Save The World” film competition, which “challenged young filmmakers to create a one-minute video about climate change.”
According to Dickson Oyugi, a member of the group, “Most of us just sit and wait for the governments to take action about climate change. … Together we can, with small actions in our daily life, make a difference.”
We couldn’t agree more!
