Three Zimbabwean teachers have been awarded scholarships to attend the Noble Prize Teachers Climate Change Summit in Stockholm Sweden.
The three educators are Tendayi Matambo from Vimbai High School in Norton, David Muzadzi from Goromonzi High School and Cressida Chiunda from Alfred Beit Primary School in Harare.
This was revealed by Swedish vice president of Noble Prize Museum Annika Hedas Falk in a statement. She said:
The Noble Prize Teachers’ Summit is an international teacher conference that takes place in Stockholm every October, where teachers from all over the world meet Noble Laureates, top scientists and peace activists on a theme of great importance in education.
With the support from Swedish Institute, a government agency that provides information about Sweden and promotes cultural, educational and research exchange with other countries, we now offer about 30 teachers from all over the world a scholarship enabling them to attend a four-day programme that centres on the Noble Prize Teacher Summit. The summit will take part place on Friday 11 October.
