At the Mena House Oberoi, in Cairo, Egypt, T.H. Culhane and Sybille Culhane brought children and teachers from the impoverished Zabaleen trash recyclers community to co-present at the African Conference on Research and Technology. It was on of the first times that stakeholders from marginalized communities were directly presenting alongside development and banking specialists, ambassadors, ministers and professors. It started a policy that Solar CITIES has observed ever since. We are a team, and we all present together.
