Written by Kevin Wafula

 

A Kenyan, Kennedy Mbeva (26), MSc Student in Environmental Management and Sustainable Development, Climate finance governance: Effectiveness, Safeguards, Carbon Trading from Kenya is among 25 young researchers through the “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development”, to tour Germany courtesy of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The Jury was particularly impressed with Kennedy’s enthusiastic activism and his clear vision of the practical applicability of his research to improving sustainable development in the future. They felt that he would benefit greatly from the opportunity to interact with German specialists as he prepares for the next phase of his academic career.

The competition, under the patronage of Minister Professor Johanna Wanka, annually awards the 25 most outstanding minds worldwide. Hailing from various research disciplines, the winners are honoured for their original solutions for a more sustainable future.   

For the sixth time, the Green Talents Award will be presented by German research minister Prof. Johanna Wanka. Out of more than 800 applications from over 100 countries, a high ranking jury of experts selected 25 up-and-coming scientists. Their prize is one of the treasured tickets to the “Green Talents - International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development”

Two weeks of interaction with some of the most renowned research institutions and leading experts now lie ahead of the newly minted “Green Talents”. Getting connected to the science community and exchanging ideas with its key innovators allows the winners to promote their approaches and to lay the foundation for future cooperation. Such efforts are supported by the invitation to return to Germany for a fully funded research stay at an institution of their choice in 2015. 

Prof. Johanna Wanka, as the patron of the Green Talents Initiative, will personally honour the winners on 7 November in Berlin. The festive awards ceremony will be one of the first events held in the new ministry building.
