Eureta Rosenberg, Research Fellow
PhD Environmental Education (Rhodes)
Eureta’s has the unique distinction of being the first to graduate with a Masters in Environmental Education from Rhodes University. She obtained her PhD in 1995 with a study on research methodologies for environmental education. At the time, she was appointed to the Murray & Roberts Chair of Environmental Education and tasked with building a cadre of environmental education professionals through a Master’s research and coursework programme. Among the other exciting projects, she developed a first certificate course (the Gold Fields course) and the first SADC-wide course for environmental education practitioners. Both are still running in some form 16 years later. Since 2000, Eureta has worked from Cape Town as a consultant, and currently as a strategic advisor for the Biodiversity Human Capital Development Programme. Her research interests focus on the quality of the educational pipeline for producing environmental practitioners, as well as a skills intelligence system to measure the progress of producing skilled professionals to work in the sector.
