The agenda for Stream South Africa 2019 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

On the edge of change: climate crisis

On Monday 1 July, I, along with my associate editor, joined a group of 41 students, and 32 lecturers and scientists, aboard the Antarctic vessel, the SA Agulhas II, for an 11-day journey following the Agulhas current. During the journey we interviewed the team of scientists – from parasitology to physical oceanography – who conduct intensive research along the Agulhas current, one of the fastest flowing current in the world, and track the effects of climate change on our oceans. We also interviewed former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, and South African Minister of Forestry and Fisheries and Environmental Affairs, Barbara Creecy. We learned more about the Agulhas current, microplastics, sea-level rise; about climate crisis; about the story of a generation, of humanity.
