EDU Africa

I work for Nottingham Trent University in the UK and we used EDU Africa to run two sessions for students during our annual Global Week celebration. These sessions were Environmental Justice and Global Legacies of Racial Justice. The sessions were fantastic and the students and staff (including me!) who participated got so much out of them. The speakers were inspiring and it was so interesting to hear their lived experiences. There was a lot to take away and reflect on in our own lives. Thank you EDU Africa!

What would you improve about this program?
Only that I wish we could have done it in person in Africa!
