The Green Belt Movement is an indigenous grassroots non-governmental organization based in Nairobi, Kenya that takes a holistic approach to development by focusing on environmental conservation, community development and capacity building. Professor Wangari Maathai established the organization in 1977, under the auspices of the National Council of Women of Kenya.

Professor Wangari Maathai, a Kenyan who became the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, started the Green Belt Movement in 1977, working with her female compatriots to demand and obtain greater access to resources like firewood for cooking and clean water. She became a steadfast advocate for better management of natural resources and for sustainability, equity, and social justice.

In presenting her with the Peace Prize, the Nobel committee hailed her for taking a holistic approach to sustainable development that embraces democracy, human rights and womens rights in particular and serving as inspiration for many in the fight for democratic rights.
