On 8th November several Masters students who have completed their research projects presented their research. Like the maturing olive trees that they helped plant outside the Main Building, these students are starting to produce research that flows from our experiments with transdisciplinary research methodologies.
Two of the presentations were based on transdisicplinary research in Enkanini, both related to community-based waste management strategies (Mollat & Von Der Hyde). Others included the ethics of sustainability transitions (Robertson), innovations for rural development (Strachan), seed politics (Swanepoel), sustainability and planning (Gardner), sustainability bench-marking (Meiring), youth development (Qaqamba), extractivism in Africa (Huber) and barriers to local level renewable energy solutions (Tshehla).
