Renewable Energy in Africa (REnA)

REnA is an ongoing project being led by the Vancouver Chapter. It all started in early 2019 when a long time BCSEA member, Dr. Henry Mwandemere, approached the Chapter with the idea to bring renewable energy to Karonga, Malawi. Henry is a retired UN scientist residing in Vancouver and his mission is to combat energy poverty in Africa by addressing two key United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: 

#5 - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

#7 - Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable modern energy for all

I chose to dress as my favorite woodland creature: a unicorn.
