Episode 45

Across Sub-Saharan Africa, science and development are being brought together by our creative young thinkers, activists and researchers. At this year’s European Development Days, the #EDD21 Young Leaders — including nine from Africa — will share their ideas and ambitions for a sustainable future with the world.

From the continent’s national parks and major cities, three of these young leaders tell Africa Science Focus reporter Michael Kaloki how they are driving sustainable development in their communities — and how wild dogs, fish and bees are involved.

This week on our question and answer segment, we hear from a student at Uganda’s Mariam High School, and cardiologist Ramon Moronkola.
