Building Connections: Sustainable Futures in Africa
Department of Adult Education, University of Botswana
27th and 28th March
From March 27-29 2017 the University of Glasgow in partnership with the University of Botswana hosted the inaugural symposium of the Sustainable Futures in Africa Network in Gaborone. This document summarizes the inaugural meeting of this newly emerging Network and documents the plans of action and commitments that arose.
The symposium welcomed the founding members of the network from Nigeria, Uganda, Botswana, Malawi, and the UK. We include academics, environmental activists, artists, and administrators. The symposium was designed to develop our relationships with one another, our knowledge and understanding of each other’s contexts, and our collective plans of action. This was tackled through a two day event that included panel presentations, workshops, discussions, and social activities.
