CSTI - What inspires us:
We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers and practitioners who believe that the scientific and technological knowledge we develop is a legacy trust we create for the community.
Some people are artists, others give inspirational speeches. We deliver understanding that can be adapted to solve ecological and industrial problems. The eagerness with which this understanding is received and used is what inspires us to do our work.
We must treat the earth well. It was not given to us by our parents, it is loaned to us by our children.
Mtunze ardhi vyema. Hamkupewa na wazazi, bali mlikopeshwa na wazawa wenu. (Swahili)
