The Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress 2022 (SRI2022) is pleased to announce welcome session proposals in English, French, Japanese, Spanish and Mandarin language sessions through its open Call for Session Proposals. Learn more and submit a proposal in the language of your choice by February 5, 2022, at 23:59 SAST (UTC +2).

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) welcome the newly formed operational definition of One Health from their advisory panel, the One Health High Level Expert Panel (OHHLEP), whose members represent a broad range of disciplines in science and policy-related sectors relevant to One Health from around the world.

The Africa Science Leadership Programme (ASLP) is growing and evolving, and also in terms of its leadership. At its last meeting, the Steering Committee appointed Dr. Connie Nshemereirwe as the new Director of the programme, taking over from the founding Director, Prof Bernard Slippers.

Now in its seventh year, the ASLP aims at growing mid-career African academics in the areas of thought leadership, team management, and research development, with the intention of enabling them to contribute to the development of a new paradigm for science in Africa, focused on its contribution to solving the complex issues facing both Africa and the global community.

 

Professor Cheikh Mbow, Director of the Future Africa Institute at the University of Pretoria (UP), has been featured in the Netflix documentary Breaking Boundaries. The film, which is narrated by Sir David Attenborough, explores the extent of Earth’s degradation.

“It was a privilege to be one of the scientists selected to feature in this global documentary,” Prof Mbow said. “This film is both specialised and easy to understand, as the iconoclastic science behind planetary boundaries is simply explained to socialise new ideas related to environmental sustainability.”

Future Africa is a flagship institute of the University of Pretoria located on the university’s Hillcrest campus. The campus offers a tranquil, yet modern environment away from the busy Hatfield centre.
