On 28 November 2019, GENS Trilateral Reseach Chair Team participated in the PATH International Presentations on the PATH Advocacy Learning Lab with 10 Masters Students from School of Arts and Design, University of Nairobi and PATH International Staff. The GENS team constituted of Dr Amollo Ambole, Prof Josephine Musango, Dr Benjamin Batinge, Christer Anditi, Peris Njoroge and Douglas Logedi.

The experience at the PATH Advocacy Learning Lab provided the GENS Team with an opportunity to engage with students generating crazy innovative outside the box ideas to deal with complex real world problems. Further, there were captivating discussions on the human-centred approach to CoDesigning and translating ideas into tangible solutions, as well as the processes of establishing a Living Lab.

GENS Trilateral Research Chair will be setting up two GENS Living Lab in the pilot case studies in Kenya and South Africa, as part of its objective of “exploring gender informed innovation and commercialisation opportunities in alternative energy technology and services”.
