Kip visited Amherst recently and met with BGW (DRE was on vacation).

I am still teaching ecological/environmental studies at the School of Environmental Studies, in the Dept. of Environmental Sciences and Education (ENSED) at Kenyatta Univ. I plan to retire in about 2 years. The CIE experience, and working in many team work experiences, and practical experiences in developing project proposals, and managing international education projects, helped me, and very many before me, and after many years it continues to help others to grow too. I greatly value the CIE goals and missions. [6-22]


I continue to each in the School of Environmental/Studies in the Dept. of Environmental Education at Kenyatta University. I founded the school and the Department many years ago. We continue to grow and continue to contribute to environment and sustainable development in general, doing training and environmental education specifically. I am planning to go on sabbatical sometime in June of 2015.  I may visit the US and would be happy to do a presentation at a Tuesday meeting on an area of the environmebt that would be of interest.[5-16]
