Join the Researchers Challenge in SADC #OpenupYourThinking

How keen are you to get involved in an ambitious research project called #OpenupYourThinking?
JET and the UNESCO Regional Office for Southern Africa and partners from the Global Challenge Research Fund’s Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures Project (South African node) as well as the Open Society Foundations (OSF) are contributing to the generation of evidence on how different groups/institutions are affected by COVID-19 and in turn, how these groups/institutions respond to COVID19. The SADC Researchers Challenge allows for real time inputs to be made into other national education processes led by organisations in SADC.
