Dr. Wangari Maathai’s Speaking Tour

Dr. Wangari Maathai, the winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize, founder of the Green Belt Movement and a pioneering advocate for women, human rights and environmental conservation, hired Caplan Communications to manage the New York leg of a Fall 2009 US/Canada speaking tour.  Our team made this iconic environmental advocate available for in-person interviews during that time as she also participated at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting and the UN General Assembly. The focus of her tour: the urgent need for U.S. leadership to help save the world’s vanishing tropical forests – and how doing so could save the climate and U.S. consumers billions of dollars.
