HEJNU would like to add science cafes as one of its activities and together with its extensive network of thought leaders, journalists, scientists and researchers they will form the foundation for a successful Science Café program in Uganda. We have an ambitious target to start holding the cafes this year or early next year.
Science Café’s revolve around the premise that when many minds are brought together the end result is more powerful than what one would have otherwise reached when working in isolation. Science Cafés are gatherings where people get together to share and explore science related findings and ideas, critique work and collaboratively pursue solutions to suggested problems. Following, Kenya’s example of a series of successful thought provoking and challenging Science Cafés, we would like to remodel and replicate the model in Uganda as well share with Zambia journalists what we achieve.
