All Eyes on Uganda in May
Next month Transition Earth will be in Uganda for the African Great Lakes Conference
, which is focused on environmental solutions in a rapidly growing and changing region. The conference will include a theme on Population, Health and Environment (PHE). We’ll be working with other PHE organizations to create a PHE poster session as part of the Population & Sustainable Development Alliance
, which will highlight successful PHE projects in East Africa and the importance of linking sexual and reproductive health services with environmental and climate change efforts.
While in Uganda, we will also be involved with a new documentary on conservation, health and development projects that is being produced by Chris Austria Productions
. We’ll be joining the film crew on a site visit to Conservation Through Public Health
, founded by Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, which is having great success with the PHE model in empowering communities and protecting nature (especially the endangered mountain gorilla).
