20 years of PAST

Comments Off on 20 years of PAST 117

Since 1994, PAST has grown from an organization funding human origins research at Sterkfontein to the largest independent, African-based supporter of research, education and public outreach in all of the palaeontological sciences across the continent. PAST has funded hundreds of postgraduate bursaries and grants for research, technical training, conferences and publications. Our Walking Tall Educational Theatre Project has reached over one million learners, educators and community members, and our annual keynote lecture series in collaboration with the Standard Bank has brought the world’s top origin scientists to the South African public.

As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we invite you to come to know your PAST and help us to promote over the next 20 years the science that demonstrates the shared African roots and common humanity of all peoples.
