Chigozie Nweke- Eze: Chigozie is originally from Nigeria and has been working for the last couple of years in Germany and Paris to promote renewable energy projects in Africa. He founded a year ago the consultancy form Africa Integrated Power, a multi-unit energy and infrastructures enterprise solving Africa's energy and infrastructure deficits. He will present his new pilot project to invest in solar panel with local communities in Nigeria. From feasibility study to pilot and funding, how to do you secure trust from all stakeholders.ica's energy and infrastructure deficits.

One of the producers of the new film called Blue Carbon that will be released on the Canalt digital TV channel in January. The film features impressive projects across the world where local communities fight climate change through restoring mangroves and salt marsh like in Camargue in France. Told through the eyes of Grammy-nominated DJ and marine biologist, Jayda Guy, accompanied by a score from the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and featuring Seu Jorge, Blue Carbon is an environmental feature documentary that brings together music and science to uncover what could be our greatest weapon in the fight against climate change.
Filmed in the USA, Senegal, Vietnam, France, Colombia and Brazil, the documentary explores the latest science around the relatively newly-discovered potential of oceans to absorb much more carbon from the atmosphere than even tropical rainforests.
This "Blue Carbon" as scientists are now calling it, can be found in salt-marshes, sea-grasses and mangroves, but once again it is a race against time to protect and restore these vital ecosystems and to harness their untold power in the battle against global warming.
