Decolonise the Faculty of Environment and Technology Seminar with African Voices Forum, "Environmental Ethics from an Indigenous Lens"

How can we better include diverse cultures and knowledge systems in the curricula? All interested staff and students are welcome to come along.

We are really excited to invite African Voices Forum to speak at this seminar, which is part of a series of seminars we have organised this year to help progress our work on Decolonising FET.

Peninah Achieng-Kindberg, from African Voices Forum, will be talking to us about bringing in the Afrikan perspective using specific case studies where we have witnessed Ecocide as a result of climate change in Beira which is the twin city of African Voices Forum. Peninah is a Senior Policy lead for the Ministry of Justice supporting the implementation of the Lammy recommendations, she is a Finance Specialist with National and International experience of advising and supporting strategic financial decision making structures including sustainability.

Rough schedule:

  • 30min presentation by Peninah Achieng-Kindberg from African Voices Forum on the topic: "Environmental Ethics from an Indigenous Lens"
  • 20min “in conversation” with wider panel members.
  • 10min wrap up-closing
  • 30min optional “reflections and next steps” in smaller groups.
