Here is the poster UP-PLASTIC: Pre-event for Go Green week February 23, 2018
It was a honor and a privilege to be
invited by two student teams, one from Makerere University college of Engineering Design Art and Technology, and another from Alto university in Finland, who have been working to solve problems based in communities through learning, example, turning plastic waste into valuable products, was done during the workshop at CEDAT.

I hope this is the only way how challenges will be solved though higher #institutions# of learning working with local communities to solve problems in the societies as well fill the gap between higher institutions of learning and grass root communities.
