Sharing knowledge, making a difference
Conservation Interaction: using media to communicate environmental solutions!
Developing countries face many ecological and environmental challenges, such as climate change, human/wildlife conflict and sustainable agriculture. Additionally, there is limited access to information that can help citizens, governments, non-governmental organisations and businesses make informed decisions to solve these issues together. Conservation Interaction uses media to facilitate knowledge exchange between and within these groups to solve environmental problems.
In Tanzania, radio is the main form of mass media communication and the most effective medium to allow people, the government and organisations to share information about problems and solutions.
Our first project, Tunza Kwa Faida is a radio programme about 'ecopreneurialism' - anything that is asset building but also environmentally friendly.
Increasingly, mobile technology is becoming the method of knowledge sharing.
Our second project is about creating a climate change portal for Tanzania. Find out what this is all about here.
Lastly, every section of society can get involved in environmentally friendly activities by reading our 'Green Solutions' is an article in The Citizen newspaper every Saturday. Read all about it here.
