It’s awards season at Newcastle University and members of the KATS team have been recognised for their achievements!
On the 27th April, our very own KATS curator, Professor Pauline Dixon, was awarded Supervisor of the Year at Newcastle University’s Education awards. Pauline was recognised for her outstanding efforts to supporting and guiding postgraduate research students. Pauline is passionate about sustainable development and has years of experience conducting groundbreaking research with children all around the world. She created the KATS project and has played an integral role in making it grow into a global success.
Working with Newcastle University’sWater Security and Sustainable Development Hub and the Janya Collective, the team delivered exciting educational sessions to children from two communities (Nizamuddin Basti and Jagdamba Camp) and Shiv Nadar School. The sessions focussed around exploring the environmental issues impacting their communities and identifying how they can protect themselves and others from the harsh impacts of climate change.
We can’t wait to see the gradual international expansion of KATS and how the project continues to harness the creativity of young people to inspire positive global change. The team are continuing to work with the Water Security and Sustainable Development Hub and their partners to expand the KATS project in Delhi and create lasting change.
