Little Haula Amina, a climate change activist, was among the delegates, and she took center stage at the conference to share the alarming truth about the country's climate crisis.
The 'Voice of the Little Ones,' a young advocate, wowed leaders with a powerful poem that challenged them to use their power to affect change in the looming climate crisis.
In her poem, she paid tribute to the late professor Wangari Maathai, acknowledging her contributions to climate change activism and reiterating her powerful statement about mother nature's power.
She stated, "I remember her saying, nature is very unforgiving, and if you destroy nature, it will destroy you."
Amina, echoing Prof Maathai's famous hummingbird anecdote, stated that she will do her best to raise awareness about the need for climate action with her small voice.
She stated that she will use her knowledge of big words in discussions about climate change to help spread the message of environmental preservation.
The young advocate amused the audience by impersonating Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe and reciting his famous remark about Kenyans treating the pandemic abnormally, in an attempt to remind them to take such directives seriously, especially in light of the climate crisis.
She expressed gratitude to Council of Governors Chairperson Martin Wambora and Environment Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko for allowing her to develop her talent and put it to good use.
