Sustainable Energy Education & Fostering Mutual Growth: Part 1 by Africa Green Collar Project published on 2019-02-10T16:55:04Z Part 1! How can young people work to accelerate the Africa’s energy transition towards a sustainable energy future? The answer? Sustainable Energy Education and Fostering Mutual Growth. This month’s podcast showcases the experiences of three students, Christina Merkai (Part 1) and Chloe Coral (Part 2) from Engineers Without Borders (KTH), Sweden and Adam Mwangaila from the University of Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. They worked together on a project to electricity a school in Singida, Tanzania. Through the podcasts, they share with us their experiences whilst working on the project, we talk about the challenges they faced, the advantages that they had through their collaboration, and they provide us with pointers on what one needs to think about when embarking on such a project! Correction* it is estimated that “according to historical trends about 515 million people will still lack access to electricity by 2030” (Dagnachew, et al., 2018).
