Self Help Africa Webinars

New Webinars by Self Help Africa’s Global Citizenship Education

Perspectives on the interconnectedness of Sciences with Development are explored in a new series of online webinars being run by Self Help Africa’s Global Citizenship Education team.


The organisation draws on both expert voices and the perspectives of student scientists in the short series on ‘Global Waste,’ ‘Global Water’ and ‘Global Soil,’ which commenced this week – and will continue over the coming weeks.


The opening presentation featured compelling testimony from Self Help Africa’s Head of Water and Sanitation (WASH) in Malawi, Smorden Tomoka, as well as contributions from three student science projects featured at this year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Students who took part included the creators of 'Banana Bandages' this year's winners of the Irish Aid ‘Science for Development Award,’ from Moate Community School, students from CBS Secondary School in Kerry whose project researched crop growth and natural soil enhances, and a project from St Mel’s College in Longford that addressed upcycling of waste for agricultural use.
