what secrets behind. find the experience and explore these cultural heritage sites. where 60. well come to the 77 percent africa smuggles in for the youth why the 77 percent you ask well because more than 3 quarters of africa's population is under the age of $35.00 and hopefully you are one of the. thanks for joining us and stay tuned you're watching the 77 percent how you ever wondered how you could better shape africa's image on the was stage we discuss this
and all a lot more on today's show. the radio reports out beatrice theory from zambia is fighting for the future of young african by talking climate change to our 7 to 7 report a meeting with african journalists and activists in germany to find out how they search that you need to have their part in it. and senegal the most successful robert takes us on a tour through the west african feet of the top. climate change isn't just a global issue it's a pastoral one as well and africans a set to take the brunt of a 21 year old radio journalist beatrice fieri knows these a better than most after taking part in the united nations used a few years ago she learned exactly ringback how climate change would impact her home country zombie oh she's now taking to the airwaves in lusaka. to share
knowledge and power to young people to take action before it's truly. a chuckle markets in lusaka trees that once protected the zambian savannah i sailed here as who can feel climate fight have beaches feel real reports how felling these trees has an impact on daily life in communities in lusaka milling with merchants in the market the young radio reporter is looking for allies in white against climate change. our ways be that what i'm here to look for problems but rather look for solutions together we don't come here to look at what negative things people are doing but rather to help as come up with solutions that are going to help us you know a collective collective so those are the things that we actually do and this is why we always have to come here to collect stories that are inspiring and what it.
really has her own show at a lusaka community radio station in an hour long broadcast each month she talks about environmental issues in lusaka and what to zambians can do about them to my tire. gauge how you. see reds. today she's talking about have visit to the shuttle market later she really needs says about her childhood telling how her neighbors would fight over water before the well ran dry due to persistent droughts. 3 believes that many zambians are already affected by the climate change but that most are not aware of it. so overpriced and needs to have adequate information and that is what my pigeon is about in all the registers that actually gets to do its about. creating or giving out information that is powerful information that is
actually able to stimulate every person's mind to say look i have been affected by this situation by climate change and i think it's high time we get to do something about it that's not. climate change is deeply and just although african countries account for a tiny fraction of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere droughts floods and rising temperatures heat the continent with full force but theory is convinced that zambians i'm not helpless and can need to get to the effects. that starts with educating people. most of the vendors and the whole market have never even heard of climate change for many theories show is an eye opener helping them to understand the changing with the patterns they have witnessed. already.
going to continue on 2016 some experienced erratic water supply due to reach out to lead to or no rainfall and also that was caused because many people were busy cutting down the truth and this is what we're actually going to get to see more if no action is actually implemented by we the people. she really wants to inspire the people at the markets to fink about ecological alternatives such as chuckle made from banana peels or maize commitment shows how young people across the globe are becoming increasingly aware that climate change may compromise their future and that action must begin now. it just goes to show if you raise your voice and strength knowledge you can help bring about change and that's exactly what we hope to do with our street debates where we ask young africans to share their opinions on controversial issues but this week's debate is a little different i was 77 percent reporter bruce almighty meets with african
journalists and activists who travel all the way to germany for the global media forum he wants to know more about how the media can change people's perception of what rekha. hello and welcome to the 77 percent debate coming to you from the global media forum in bone and today we're discussing about of very interesting topic how can african journalists ship the image of the continent both locally and internationally so i would have a very interesting. group of other lists you are a blog and a social activist from nigeria how difficult is it to tell a story about material without mentioning. for example corruption well it's one of the major things that people recognise nigeria with that is boko haram corruption and such things but there are stories that are missing from the conversation so for
example in northern nigeria we know stories about oppression when it comes to women but people do not realize there is a new movement of northern nigeria and women who are beginning to advocate for really important issues such as you think lucian and more recently a movement called me to i mean to north inhouse the language it is spoken in northern nigeria and you have a lot of young women coming out to speak about abuse and sexual harassment and that's a growing movement right now in northern nigeria well what i'm saying is they're still going on and that needs to be told globally but for a lot of social activist from cynical. about the things that we see on the international scene i mean the negative negatives. my opinion is they want to show . the but things in africa in order to make us dream in order for us to need to come in europe because america we don't need it we have not a positive things in africa like young people. involving in politics
trying to make social change we have a lot of things a lot of positive things showing of. you in terms of your activism from chord changes on you know. how difficult is it to try and change these things in an environment that is restricted i believe that one of the things that we ought to understand is the context i think what gets lost in international news is not that they write about bad news or news that we may not want to have it in the public or hide but what is the. boko haram has got a much bigger context than just saying that their terrorists are taking away young girls there's poverty there's all that but there's always a story of hope in any story so it's up to us to find that hope most of the time the only reason we have negative news in the international media is because people within the country are not given the freedom to tell the story the way they want to if the media is free they will tell the good and the bad story inside the country
and that gets outside as what should international audience have a full picture about africa for example of course yes i just want to go question to people as a journalist you don't need to come with a template in your head you don't need to come weave a photo in your head and you want to see the photo is always in your head on the ground no you are talking about facts and people behind the screen they want to see those facts. my role is not to give interpretation my role is not to guide people to say ok you see this is go well you have to see this one this is no just give the facts and tell people the story thank you so much make the choice ok thank you so much when the when he talks about fox but it's the pressure in trying to deliver the stories yeah. yeah i feel like there is pressure when you look at the media house if the media owners and i either affiliated or associated to
a certain party so we don't have we don't have rules and guidelines which sotto the media house of independent from whatever is going on 5th of all a journalist has to be independent in the context of the local content into the venue for them to provide content so you have a very good you know it's very great content but they don't want to go there if they don't want to be received published by mainstream media but so much well. first of all elect to say that i agree with everything that's been saved here but i'd like to add something to that i think that as journalists what we have to do is to just create this piece and let people tell their stories we do not have to be the ones that have the monopoly you know to tell the stories or to decide what's going to make news and what shall not make news. i'm noting because of so many comments that have been made on the strong points that are coming out on how many media houses secure their journalists provide that security that safety net for
journalists to go out there and come back with stories if i am a small african journalist an in less than $100.00 a month and you want me to investigate a media conglomerate or investigate. an iron ore mine or or somebody who has everything to put me down and kill me how can i do it these are the things we have to look at let media owners also be strong let them stand out in africa and help the young people coming up so many young john. well as with potentials but just him to move around i think the greatest challenge for us african journalists is to step beyond just publishing a story we need to deal and fix the problems as well see what we can do of course with our plans not with anything else. thank you get out of this. i just want to say i don't want us to run away from the fact that the media is a powerful tool to set the agenda for conversations in the entire society as one of
the people who were leading the not too young to run movement in nigeria i can assure you that the traditional media as well outside of social media there's so many people who still just listen to only the radio and can access only the radio so such tools such as the radio and the newspaper as well as social media all contributed and general is one of the 4 people who pushed the movement so it's really important that we understand that the media does still have the power to said the agenda for conversations and just as everybody has said i would like to echo that in the sense that it's our responsibility not just in activism but also in shaping the way people look at issues so i think in terms of even promoting our own country's development journalists do have a role in beginning to shape the way people think positively about what they can do and what is happening in africa she's a very important things but i mean this topic for example environment and business of the things that. some of the things that i realize as
a journalist is talking about very mundane things about the rise of price in bread and just have a conversation around that but then set the context populism that you talked about is so easy to sort of say the traders are the ones to blame how do you as a journalist explain that maybe there are some issues within the environment the business environment is different i can assure you that us a person who's been in a lot on social media and in mainstream media people want to know how. anythings affect the everyday lives and they're also open a lot for positive stories but you need to find the good news which is going to show the side of us that most of the time we don't think about that you know of ation the fun i mean i think we africans have for fun let's show we can have fun sometimes we laugh and we're also very very creative so i think people are interested is just for us to go and find the stories thank you so much and yes on a lighter note as journalists i think we should also not forget we might be corrupt but we are fighting corruption the my every problems in africa but we're trying to
solve them not just thank you so much that's a good way to end this debate i mean thank you so much wonderful people for attending the astute debate. this continue talking you can visit us on our website and our social media pages and because so much from of doesn't. have any of our stories so far spot to curiosity that would be sure to check out our you tube channel where you'll find the full wash and i was trying to bait and more interesting topic. now if you think the manoa next segment looks for media then well done that means you've been paying attention for my lad musician and activist from senegal and before giving us some insight into africa's future during our street debate he was kind enough to give us apostle to our own he city.

square to make their voices head. we used to sleep in front of the police station until the 20 fast of june and the law was not passed in the end this place of independence it is a place of indignation because there are also protesting here in the seventy's so a lot of movement. it's a very symbolic place for democracy but i think through song and action inspires a generation the symbol of the era of illusion is the hearts one on their heads even today there. is a symbol of resistance. it has become a symbol of culture. if you go to new york or chicago you'll see the baseball camps but here it's this one. from a large invites us to his studio in west for our working class neighborhood this is where he creates the soundtrack to his protest before going inside we grab some
