Quote from the interview
What are your key learnings from this programme?
“I think as someone who has been working in the renewable energy space for the past nine years, the key learning for me has been the value of collaborative action and networking. We have been able to get a lot done with people whose offices were a bit out of our reach at some times, but I think through the project we got to meet each other on a personal level as well as on a professional level and we managed to get certain things done and think about things that we have not managed to sit down in one room and think about. As well as just being able to have experiences from other countries, other regions has been very helpful for us.”Zibusiso Ncube, Zimbabwe, REP 2
