Greening Africa Together

We would like to invite you to the presentation and exhibition of the current projects of Greening Africa Together/TU Berlin on Saturday and Sunday, February 08/9, 2020 at BHROX Bauhaus Reuse, Ernst-Reuter-Platz, Mittelinsel.
The project flash presentations and poster exhibition followed by cocktails will take place on February 8 starting at 18:00. Please see the attached invitation for additional program items.
Greening Africa Together is a joint international service learning master module on renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable development of the TU Berlin and African universities and NGOs of the network of the same name. Master students from all participating partner universities in Senegal, Benin, Burkina Faso, DRCongo, Cameroon, Uganda, Kenya and TU Berlin first develop online cooperative projects to solve concrete needs of the respective populations with renewable energy or a sustainable green development approach. The projects of the international teams in the areas of sustainable forestry, photovoltaics, biogas, fuel briquettes, water quality, food processing and sustainable agriculture are then implemented together in summer schools with local NGOs and the local population.
Very important is also the cooperation with local and international institutions, development cooperation organizations and business partners. We are convinced that through intensive project development and implementation by academically supervised students, who thus contribute to the universities’ assumption of social responsibility, a better adaptation to local needs can be achieved. This is also proven by the meanwhile 3 years of project experiences, which amount to the steady expansion of the network.
Of course, the projects in the field of renewable energies, sustainable agriculture and forestry also contribute to CO2 reduction and avoidance and are now to be offered in part as CO2 compensation projects for institutions, organizations and companies. Initial information will also be provided on this.
We look forward to your participation, questions and contributions to further implement the presented projects reliably on site with a steadily growing network in March and April 2020.
