MRM Eye in the Wild photography competition

MRM Eye in the Wild is a photo competition organized by Mabati Rolling Mills for 2017. We are looking for photos that highlight the state of wildlife in their natural habitat.

The competition runs from April 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017.

Of the photos submitted, a judging panel will choose 12 of the best that shall be the anchor images for our 2018 calendar and participants have a chance to win other amazing prizes.

As Kenya develops and our population increases, the challenges in conservation also multiply and new ones emerge. The very fact that 60% of wildlife in Kenya lives amongst communities brings with it the now prevalent human wildlife conflict driven by the needs of communities to prosper and wildlife to survive.

Habitat loss, climate change and poaching are among the most alarming challenges faced by wildlife today. The list of species joining the endangered list grows each year. Poaching and trafficking of wildlife is now the most immediate threat to many species, whether charismatic or less known.

The fate of the world’s wildlife will soon be in the hands of the next generation. The pressing need for enhanced action to ensure the survival of wildlife in its natural habitats must be imparted from generation to generation.

Call for Papers: 6th Annual Conference UNIVERSITIES, ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA

Wednesday 19th July 2017
University of Nairobi, School of Business 
University Way, Nairobi City (CBD), Kenya
 
Theme: Universities, Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development in Africa
Entrepreneurship and enterprise development holds a huge potential for unlocking economic potential of African countries, reducing the income disparities and repositioning the continent strategically in the global economic, social and political spheres. Despite having a large pool of untapped natural resources and human capital, several African countries decry weak economies, poor governance and widespread poverty and human suffering. Nonetheless, universities have the chance to provide the impetus for changing the status quo through knowledge creation, dissemination and technology transfer.
 
Borrowing from experiences of developed countries as well as middle income countries, entrepreneurship triggers mobilization and redirecting of resources to opportunities with greater economic returns. Hence, university and industry linkages in diverse ways support enterprise development, participation of poor people in the economic process and creation of employment opportunities in Africa. Furthermore, the interaction of African universities with foreign universities promotes technology transfer to African enterprise and increases the chances of international market access through cultural awareness.
