Welcome to eco@africa

Meet Nneota Egbe, presenter of eco@africa, the show dedicated to exploring environmental issues and solutions across Africa and Europe. In this edition, he starts with an ambitious solar energy initiative in Rwanda.

In the latest edition of eco@africa: We go to Senegal, where work is underway to create an eco-village in a National Park. It is just one of thousands planned across the country, and highlights the possibilities of self-sufficient living.

We also meet a Nigerian artist who uses the rubbish he finds on the streets to create sculptures, installations and performances that highlight the environmental impacts of Africa's exploding urban populations. Want to see his work?

Our presenter, Nneota will also introduce you to the so-called Solar Sisters, who are doing it - by which we mean generating power - for themselves, and for many others in Uganda. And speaking of doing things, we go to the UK, where one man is doing his bit for the environment by teaching others how to make their own wind turbines.

Staying in Europe, we head to Italy to cross the threshold of a passive house. Not sure what that is? Tune in to find out.
