Potato peel, old bread, apple cores - organic waste accrues in every kitchen. But rather than throwing it away, it can instead be used to power engines - and already fuels 150 garbage trucks in Germany’s capital Berlin.
On eco@africa, we meet some charismatic cats in Uganda, the people turning poop into energy in Kenya and Tanzanians transforming plastic waste into comfy seats. All this and much more on the latest show!
On this week's eco@africa, we meet Nigerians striving for sustainability, German farmers using ancient Amazonian techniques, and Ugandan school children getting green-fingered with urban farming projects at school.
Berlin may seem like a concrete jungle but nature is everywhere if you'd only look. That's what one nonprofit in the German capital wants to show kids with free learning material, so they can help protect the planet.
On this week's eco@africa, we see how climate change can promote democracy, find a good use for coffee grounds and visit an architect who is reviving an ancient African construction technique. All this and more!
