Dear All,

Earlier in the year, C4DLab launched a Bike sharing program

(http://bikeshare.c4dlab.ac.ke/) and piloted it for 2 months. A number of lessons were learned through the pilot. We then took a break to assess our experiences and reflect on what we have learned.

The concept is still at very initial stages and we are exploring resources to automate it, increase the number of docking stations and enhance the infrastructure that enables safe riding.

Peace Conference Targeting Student Leaders

Date and time: 
Mon, 2017-05-29 09:28

The two day Conference which drew participants from 50 public and private universities had the theme “the role of student leaders in a sustainable culture of peace and security in Kenya.
 
Speaking during the opening ceremony, Prof. Judith Bahemuka the UNESCO/UNITWIN Chair, who were the organizers of the Conference, , noted that the universities have been recognized  as fore in  promoting a culture for peaceful co-existence and to ensure that the community has responsible citizens. Universities are central to peace building and sustainable security through engagement in critical research that bridges the gap between research, policy and practice and the development of a curriculum to address peace and security.
 
The University of Nairobi’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi observed that one major challenge facing our universities and the country in general is radicalization of youth.  The output of radicalization is extreme violence, and at times terrorism.  This is an area where Universities have to vigorously counter, with knowledge, technology and determination, all attempts to radicalize our youth in order to secure our country and national institutions.  The other challenge is the increase in cyber crime.  The pain experienced by ordinary Kenyan citizens due to cyber bullying, misguided information, and down-right stealing of funds from banks and other financial institutions can be minimized if the universities, particularly, the students, can play their part.
