Welcome to the latest edition of eco@africa

On this week's eco@africa, we meet musicians rapping about rubbish in Ghana, kids catapulting 'seedballs' to regenerate Kenya's forests and designers bringing new life to old car tires in Nigeria.

This week on eco@africa, we meet young Africans getting creative to clean up their local areas — and discover the ideas giving European cities a greener future. 

Join us in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, for some rap music with a difference. With plastic waste littering the city's streets and beaches, can musicians help to shake up environmental awareness? 

Next up we take you to Kenya where a new project is getting kids involved in reforestation. Find out how catapults and 'seedballs' are making conservation fun! 

In Nigeria, we meet an innovative designer turning Lagos' waste problem into a design opportunity — turning material from the rubbish heap into beautiful furniture. 

We're off to Germany next, where digitalization is in full swing in the city of Hamburg. Smart traffic lights and mapping systems are helping to reduce traffic and create a more eco-friendly urban environment. 

Staying in Europe, we visit the Hungarian capital, Budapest, where inventors have developed solar-powered street furniture — a smart way to relax and recharge! 

Finally, we head to Egypt to discover why the River Nile — and the country's water supply — could be under threat.
