Increasingly, human activities threaten the global flora and fauna. The kenyan coast is home to some of the world’s unique species, which need protection from the adverse effects of human activities including development, overexploitation, and pollution. The Green Heart of Kenya is founded on the view that development should not come at the expense of natural ecosystems. Development should happen alongside sustainable protection and conservation of the natural ecosystems, flora, and fauna. Our development strategy includes regenerative activities for the natural ecosystems around the Takaungu Creek while providing affordable development for residential and commercial occupants.
A deep and personal understanding of sustainability is important if the world is to move closer to achieving the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. For the Green Heart of Kenya, protection of the lives of animals and plants through our rewilding and sustainable construction is at the heart of the project. At the Green Heart Village, we aim to not only provide good housing but also housing that uses significantly less energy than comparable properties and has a sustainable waste management plan set out in our waste management strategy. For us, sustainable development not only protects the environment but also provides higher quality of life, better and healthier food, cleaner water, cleaner air and empowered neighborhoods.
These development strategies will not only allow the residents to live in a sustainable neighborhood but also participate in regenerative agriculture by leasing and farming on our agricultural land. We believe that this mixed-use model can spur sustainable development and real estate across the world. The sustainability of our ecosystems depends on our actions or lack of them. We are choosing to be part of the sustainable majority. Will you join us?
