We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
Africa possesses a huge potential of renewable energy sources which has been widely neglected to date. Meanwhile, there is a significant interest in renewable energy sources in the related countries, especially because most of the population south of the Sahara still has no access to clean and affordable sources of energy. The lack of energy is one of the most hindering factors to the people of southern Africa, as there can be no development without access to reliable energy sources.
Renewable energy sources can play a decisive role in the creation of a more sustainable energy development, and may also prevent African countries from following the unsustainable, fossil fuel-driven progress of the industrial nations.
The presentation of the WISIONS team will take place at 18:00 CET on 9 December 2014 at the University of Bonn, Germany.
