GTUC Holds 20th Prestigious Lecture

The Graduate School recently held another in its series of Prestigious lectures on Saturday, 12th October, 2019. The event, which marked the 20th edition of the prestigious lectures, was held at the Florence Onny Auditorium and was attended by about 150 graduate students and staff. The theme for the lecture was “Energy Access and Energy Security Challenges in Developed and Developing countries”, and centered mainly on the current landscape within the energy sector and the importance of the appropriate use, conservation and harnessing of our relatively limited energy resources.

The keynote speaker for the lecture, Dr. Victoria Nalule, delivered a masterclass on the topic, and shared her considerable knowledge on the strategies that would need to be adopted by developed and developing countries to ensure that the future of our energy resources remains intact. Dr. Nalule, a lawyer and research fellow at the University of Dundee in the United Kingdom, provided expert insight surrounding the need for a considered approach towards energy conservatism and stressed the significance of collaboration at all levels if we are to avoid an insurmountable global energy crisis in the near future.

Once again, the lecture represented a massive success, and went a long way to demonstrate the enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge among our Graduate students in particular. We would like to commend the Graduate school for bringing yet another excellent speaker to our institution and we are excited for the upcoming editions of this unique GTUC initiative.
