Me Advert

I know I haven’t posted in a while thought I’d take the brief time I have to try and get into a situation where I have more time to do the things I love. So with that in mind this is me on linkedin:

Please feel free to contact me in whatever way if you feel, if there may be an opportunity to collaborate or work on some new sustainable R&D, brainstorm or just shoot the proverbial breeze.

I’m fairly well acquainted with aquatic ecosystems and wetlands. Studied up on Marine systems and the rocky coasts.

I’m passionate about getting into environmental engineering and creating the solutions we think we need in the developing world that will allow it to diversify away from fossil fuels and into a cleaner more bio-diverse space (that’s the dream anyway). Solving social ills along the way if I may be so bold.

I have a few ideas around wetlands and water purification, removing life support systems, like waste water treatment, from the grid. love the Gates Foundation work in highlighting the need to clean water and provide energy with the great press the omniprocessor has been getting.

I’m also on twitter @Raggie86

Lets get together and start innovating and solving for real world solutions! Lets just start talking and see where it goes.

Good vs Selfish

This something I’ve been wanting to see for a long time now. I just didn’t know it. I’ve yearned for leadership for what feels like 1999 when the icon of our nation stepped down.

I want to live in a good country and I want to hold my government accountable for the evil and the bile that they produce. I want to live in a country that has a firm moral and peaceful standing internationally. A country that is renown for it’s wisdom and willingness to act in the interest of the greatest good.

I’m not displeased with South Africa’s ranking of 44th overall. I want to see it climb! Kenya is at 26 yet lacks our resources. could we team up with them, allow each other to grow and prosper faster still? It is not uncommon to hear that South Africa views it’s self as being apart from Africa. How do we change this? How do we sit down with our brothers and sisters and say what can we do for each other? How do we see Africa growing? Where do we need help? Who can help us. First we need a group goal.

The African Union is a nice start, but we have some of the largest development gaps on our continent. The haves and the have nots need to reach out and pull themselves together. So that living conditions improve. South Africa has amazing engineers, some great scientists.

I want to see the African Union of Applied Thinking. I want to see advances in technology being shared because they were developed to combat similar conditions that we share with our neighbours. Only if we join hands and move in the same direction will we achieve anything. We need a unifying goal. Poverty alleviation could be that goal. Food security threatens us all.

Let us engage with Zimbabwe and ask her people what she is doing with her fertile soils? How can we help, even though we may not agree on every point we cannot sit by and watch you starve in silence. Your food could feed us too. Can we first agree on something and then work towards the rest.

I am ashamed at how quickly and easily we have turned our back on those that sheltered us and fed us in our time of need. those that fought and died for us.

We have more so we must offer first. For the good of us all.
