SEGHLive aims to provide an online, interactive forum for our members, ECRs and fellows to share their latest research and engage in a societal wide discussion. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to postpone our annual international conference, which was due to take place this summer in Eldoret, Kenya.
To ensure that our members remain active within SEGH, we have decided to host two online sessions using Zoom based on the abstracts that would have been presented at the international conference as well as a few invited speakers, based on the following themes:
• Urban and Industrial development
SEGHLive aims to be a fast paced, dynamic online webinar, which will consist of a combination of 15-minute keynotes and 5-minute oral presentations with designated slots for questions and discussion.
