Ultimately, this program is developing a network of science centers and museums that have a shared goal of increasing public understanding and interest in sustainability action on a global scale.
The objective of the program is to educate fellows about sustainability, offer networking opportunities for like-mined professionals to share best practices and aid in the development of a framework for sustainability projects that the fellows can implement in their home institutions.
“I am very thrilled to be among the cohort of 20 fellows selected from science centres and museums around the world and to be one of the three representatives of Africa. This prestigious fellowship will make me a role model for future generations, especially through the science fairs which are a critical environment for making transformative change towards sustainability. The impact of this fellowship will certainly go a long way in advancing sustainable solutions and awareness which is a serious need in Zimbabwe” Chikundi.
Knowledge will be going to join the other 19 fellows from around the world at Arizona State University in April. The Centre for Public Awareness of Science and Innovation (CPASI) Zimbabwe will implement all the sustainability solutions activities proposed by Chikundi upon his return.
