Albie Sachs Tang Award

Albie Sachs, the South African judge who rose to fame for his role in the anti-apartheid struggle, was recently awarded the Tang Prize, touted as Asia's version of the Nobels, for his contributions to human rights and justice.

An interdisciplinary group of students, from the Science and Law Faculties, supervised by Micha Young from the Law Faculty’s Institute of Marine & Environmental Law, will be heading to Copenhagen in October this year.  The competition, which is organised, hosted and funded by the University of Copenhagen, is centred around the negotiation of a Sustainable Energy Trade Agreement.  The aim of this Agreement, to be negotiated by the teams, each of which represents a fictional state, is to liberalise trade in environmental goods. 

Once again we had a great turnout at the race.  ENSafrica sponsored t-shirts and hosted a brunch for us after the race.  

These are some of the pictures taken by ENS.
