The 2021 UN theme selected for the 5th UN Environment Assembly is “Strengthening Actions for Nature to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.”
Based on the agreed theme, Miss Eastlands Organization has contextualized and localized its theme to “Strengthening Savings and Internal Lending Communities (SILC) for Decent Work and Economic Growth.” as an action geared towards youth empowerment in slums and informal settlements of Nairobi’s Eastlands. Our theme is founded on the eighth goal of promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all Eastlanders. 2021 is also the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. It is in this regard that Miss Eastlands Organization has come up with a goal and objectives that will connect and consolidate environmental actions within the context of sustainable development and give significant impetus to more effective implementation. The theme of Miss Eastlands®’s Pageant in 2021 will mobilize, motivate and energize individuals, partner groups and stakeholders into sharing and implementing successful approaches and nature-based solutions that contribute to the achievement of Kenya’s Green Growth and Employment agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly the eradication of poverty and the promotion of sustainable patterns of consumption and production.
