Welcome to eco@africa

This week on eco@africa, we visit a seaweed startup in France, meet elephants in Namibia and find out how a South African slum is going green. Join us for these and other exciting stories from Africa and Europe.

DW eco@africa - Nneota Egbe (DW)

This week’s eco@africa show is filled with eco innovations from around Africa and Europe.

First we’re in Nigeria, where hydroponic farming techniques are helping to boost food production for the country’s booming population.

Then it’s off to Germany: in the capital, Berlin, a pair of environmental engineers has developed a do-it-yourself windmill kit which they hope could bring energy to off-grid communities around the world.

Join us at Kenya’s Dandora dumpsite, where some local women are earning a living recycling wigs and hair extensions they find in the trash.

In Namibia, find out how humans and elephants are learning to live together – despite the challenges.

Back in Europe, we’re in France to discover a fresh take on bioplastic – made from seaweed.

And finally, we take you to the South African township of Diepsloot, where kids are taking a leading role in making their neighborhood a healthier place to live. 

Check out the show and let us know what you think at ecoafrica@dw.com
