The first undergraduate African Summer School in Climate Change and its Adaptation

Is Africa just a continent that suffers? Does Africa only wait for international aid? Does a policy on Climate Change exist in African countries? What is the current state of African science in Climate Change?… These are just some of the questions you may ask yourselves and of which you will be able to find out some answers during our school!

During the two weeks in Nairobi (Kenya), you will enjoy two inaugural courses provided by expert professors from the Institute of Climate Change and Adaptation which is based in the Faculty of Science and Technology at University of Nairobi. One challenging group-work will be proposed to mixed teams of students, African and non-African. Four Conferences and two field visits are complementing the school. You will also enjoy an introduction to East Africa history and culture, and a Kiswahili course. During your free time, you may enjoy a safari to Nairobi National Park and pay a visit to the National Museum of Kenya where you will meet our million year ancestors… and possibly stay in Kenya after the school to travel in our beautiful country!

The program runs from July 1-12, 2024, and is open to current Undergraduate/Bachelor students having completed a minimum of 2 years at the time of the summer school.
