July Highlight: Zimbabwe Media Workshop
Last month Power for All held its first media workshop in Zimbabwe, bringing together editors and producers from the country’s leading media houses. The well received event provided knowledge on decentralized renewable technologies, business models and impact. The strong interest in energy access solutions by the editors led to immediate opportunities to profile decentralized renewable energy on Zimbabwe’s top radio show Star FM, as well as ZTV lunchtime news. Find out more in our article about the event.
A second media workshop will take place in Zimbabwe this month, and Power for All will be hosting events for journalists in Sierra Leone and Nigeria in September.
