Founder, Partnerships and Engagement Leader
Wrixon is a young Malawian man who is committed to making a difference in his country. In 2016, He worked on a research project for Eawag at Limbe market in Blantyre. Wrixon interacted with several market vendors during the research, and noticed the lack of awareness about environmental and sustainability issues among the vendors. He was surprised that none of the (interviewed) vendors had ever heard about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). That aroused his curiosity and he began randomly asking people if they knew of the SDGs. Their responses were startling: only people working in the sustainable development sector knew about the SDGs. He decided to start Our Fresh Futurez as a platform to advocate for sustainability and the SDGs. Wrixon is a graduate of the University of Malawi.
