I have been speaking about sustainability issues at public, non-academic venues, with the aim to reach as many people as possible. These venues include community gatherings, pubs and radio stations. For instance, I spoke at the Research in the Pub Event at Calgary on 17 January 2017.
Recently, I joined the African Vibes Collective on Vancouver Coop Radio, hosted by Henry Mwandemere and Willard Oliver. I was first invited as a guest to speak about the Liu Institute Network for Africa 11 November 2018, and later to speak about climate change in Africa while the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was ongoing at Katowice, Poland, on 9 December 2018. My latest talk is about Agenda 2063 for sustainable development, and this is in March 2019. I believe the collective is a solid platform for broadcasting and sensitizing on sustainability matters affecting Canada and Africa. I am very grateful for the opportunity.
