CERM-ESA’s first PhD scholarship holder graduates from Oldenburg University

CERM-ESA is proud to announce that David Ssekamatte from Uganda Management Institute successfully defended his dissertation titled: The Opportunities and Challenges for Climate Change Education at Universities in the African Context: A Comparative Case Study of Makerere University (Uganda) and University of Dar es Salaam (Tanzania).

After the defense on Friday, the 7th of September 2018, David said: “I am extremely happy to complete my doctoral journey that started in January 2016. I have had the best experience here at the University of Oldenburg with exceptional doctoral support from my supervisors and the CERMESA family. I am so grateful. I now look forward to adding value to my country and Uganda Management Institute in particular through quality research and supervision support for the students and advancing sustainability education research in African contexts to higher levels.”

David, who is leaving for Uganda later this week, will mentor the two new CERM-ESA PhD scholarship holders at UMI who will take up their work in January 2019.

Congratulations on this marvelous success, David!!!
