From March 6-8 was the Clinton Global Initiative University at the University of Miami. Because the Energant team is scattered all throughout the US, it was nice for some of the team to finally meet in one place!
The speakers too were so moving and inspiring with their stories and experiences, especially those that we could really relate with. For example, Wanjira Mathai, Director of the Partnership of Women's Entrepreneurship in Renewables (wPOWER) Hub at Wangari Maathai Institute, really brought to light to the audience about the issues of cooking with open fires and the health implications, which really resonated with us since we are tackling the very same issue. Traditional cook stoves emit so much smoke and pollution that affects not just the people breathing in this smoke, but ultimately, our atmosphere.
Thank you Laureate International Universities for the opportunity!
