We need a united goal to drive the necessary rise in Africa's tertiary education
The Planet Earth Institute is an international NGO and charity working for the 'scientific independence of Africa'. We build our work around three pillars, of higher education, technological innovation and advocacy and policy.
This challenge is an open invitation to our partners, friends, and all others working on these issues to share ideas.
What barriers do you face in working on scientific or higher education programmes? What should be the goal of 'scientific independence'? How can we best use technology and innovation to drive this agenda?
Share thoughts, ideas and experience!
All Simpl ideas will be part of the major UnConference held on 11th July 2013, and help us to inform discussion on the day.
