The Dyslexic Professor: Spot the ‘pukka’ approach to my final preparations for GCRF RECIRCULATE trip to Ghana!

In the final stages of preparing for the Entrepreneurship and Innovation training workshops in Accra, Ghana next week. Workshop plan TICK; Learning resources TICK; Background material TICK; Passport TICK; Yellow Fever Certificate TICK; But which flavour of my favourite Pukka tea bags to pack?

I am a Co-Investigator, and leader of the ‘Entrepreneurship and Innovation’ work package, on £6.8M Global Challange Research Fund (GCRF) ‘RECIRCULATE: Driving Eco-innovation in Africa – Capacity-building for a safe circular water economy’ will empower African research organisations to work in, with and for their communities by strengthening their skills and capacity to deliver innovative solutions to pressing problems with water use and safety. The project will focus on “joining up” the different ways in which water supports communities, from sewage disposal to energy generation and water used in food production.

RECIRCULATE will bring together leading researchers in the UK, Ghana and Nigeria with African entrepreneurs, policymakers and community leaders, to deliver the innovative approaches needed to integrate the different uses of water, and which support sustainable, equitable development –

I can’t decide which flavour – so, it’s Peppermint & liquorice; Three fennel; Lemon, ginger & manuka honey.
