TransCIIT: Transforming Climate Innovation Ecosystems through Inclusive Transdisciplinarity.

 

Matching the climate entrepreneur’s needs with masters students’ expertise

Sub-Saharan African countries characterised by high poverty index, growing population, and increased pollution levels pose a significant danger of harsh realities of climate change.  Therefore, the COVID pandemic and the growing poverty group in SSA countries will likely impact the greening agenda substantially.  This calls for a building better paradigm by universities and entrepreneurs to skill the youth and women to engage in entrepreneurial activities that contribute to the greening agenda.

 

This project aims to develop and mobilise the green agenda in impoverished communities in post-COVID contexts in Kenya.  The goal is to foster green entrepreneurship amongst disadvantaged communities through innovation and entrepreneurship.  Green and circular economy enhancement will create job opportunities, boost the national economy and eventually support UN sustainable development goals.

In this initiative, we will develop an integrated research eco-system emphasising the Greening of the Economy, Skills, and the building back better (post-COVID) agendas.  The project will create services to match young and women climate entrepreneurs evolving business needs and match these businesses with master’s students to co-create climate innovations solutions to tackle the climate change challenges in Kenya.  The focus will be on changing technology roles and mobilising technological solutions (economic, institutional, medical, nutritional, social, etc.) to ensure a coherent integration into the Green agenda post-COVID economic reconstruction.  The approach will promote transdisciplinarity and inclusivity, essential to tackling climate change while achieving equity and justice.

 

The partner institutions implementing this project include- Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology (JOOUST), Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC), and the African Centre for Technology Studies (ACTS), University of Johannesburg, and the University of Sussex.

 

 

 

We wish this project well as we unite to grow and innovate Africa for youth employment opportunities

British Council – Innovation for African Universities Programme (IAU)

 

The IAU programme is implemented by the Centre of Excellence (CoE), a partnership between the City, University of London, the University of Nairobi and ChangeSchool UK.

 

The Programme comprises 24 partnerships of UK universities, SSA universities and entrepreneurial eco-system organisations.  The Programme is running in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana & South Africa.

We look forward to working in partnership with project KENTEN to exchange knowledge and ideas to strengthen the role of universities in entrepreneurship eco-systems.
