Welcome to eco@africa

On this week's eco@africa, we meet a true hero of environmental activism, discover underwater gardens in Kenya and visit Rwanda a decade after its plastic ban.

This week's eco@africa is packed with a host of interesting environmental stories from Africa and Europe. 

First, our host in Nigeria meets Nnimmo Bassey, one of Africa's leading environmental voices, to talk food security, pollution by the oil industry and what drove him to become an activist. 

Then we head to Germany, where a startup is converting shipping containers into portable solar power stations that can light up a whole village. 

On a trip to Kenya, we meet with fishing communities who are protecting rare marine life off the country's southern coast in an unusual way. 

After that, we check in on Rwanda to assess the success of its pioneering plastic bags and packaging ban, ten years after it was introduced.

This week's "Doing Your Bit" features an organic community farm in Egypt. Then we wrap up the show with a report about Tanzania's nomadic Hadza people who have turned to modern technology to defend their traditional way of life. 

We hope you enjoy the show.
