Re: SEI Science Forum "At the Intersection between Environment and Development" - watch live on the web: 4 June, 10:00 CEST

Thanks for posting the links to these filmed presentations from your science forum, Arno.

I just listened to the presentation by Melinda Gates and found it really interesting to understand better how the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation "ticks". She didn't mention water, sanitation and hygiene in her talk (pity) but a lot of the aspects that she touched on related also to our topic. Such as: the importance of "going upstream" of the disease (focussing on prevention), the importance of behavior change aspects, the fact that science is at the core of all our learnings, the importance of learning in the organisation, also learning from failures (she gives one example of a failure when they invested only in the drug to treat a disease but didn't consider enough the causes of the disease). She talks about empowering women and girls and how important that is.

I really enjoyed the talk and the moderation by your director, Johan Kuylenstierna, was also very nice.
Thanks for sharing this all online.

Regards,
Elisabeth
