ShareScreen Africa is A Pan-African conservation-based tutorial initiative to the benefit of conservation departments, agencies, training institutions, universities, researchers, colleges, tutors and students peer to peer. It is an initiative by the Leadership for Conservation in Africa (LCA) The aim is:
To freely share knowledge and broaden skillsets
To create a Pan-African conservation-based student program for learning, practical and career opportunities.
The LCA has been in existence since 2006 as a not-for-profit company with the vision to:
Positively influence, accelerate and bring about the protection of rainforests and selected eco-systems in Sub-Saharan Africa.
In collaboration with its sister organisation, the Sabine Plattner African Charities (SPAC), we have been involved in various educational projects in a number of African Countries and specifically the Congo Basin. Since 2018 we have also focussed on climate change, with the aim to create a consciousness and awareness, especially amongst the African youth.
Organisations such as African-based National Park agencies, universities, scientists, researchers, technical and conservation experts, international NGO’s, and the like, freely donate time (lecturing-hours) regarding their area of speciality to the ShareScreen initiative.
The above topics of speciality go onto the ShareScreen Africa platform & catalogue. The catalogue can be browsed or searched by topic, presenter, titles, keywords etc.
Counterpart African conservation-based organisations, institutions and interest groups simply apply on the platform to be virtually linked to those who have donated their time and expertise, where after knowledge, practical and technical expertise is shared, organisation to organisation, specialist to specialist and peer to peer.
Not limited to, however initially initiated by the LCA in collaboration with its partners SAP (Africa), Sabine Plattner African Charities (SPAC), South African National Parks (SANParks), Standard Bank (Stanbic) and various international universities, spearheaded by the South African University of the Free State, whereas there are ongoing negotiations with well-known international conservation organisations and academic institutes to endorse and promote this initiative.
