In this week’s episode of the podcast we tackle one of the biggest conundrums facing Africa: how do we develop whilst avoiding the pitfalls of the ‘industrialised’ world.

Tune in to hear from: Dr Yemi Katerere, Chairman of Manicaland Bioenergy and former leader of Ecological Futures at WWF; Dr Morné du Plessis, CEO of WWF South Africa (@WWFSouthAfrica); Ruth Mthembu and Sandile Ntuli (@TweetAtRuthy) from the Youth4MPAS (@y4mpas_sa) and Wild Oceans SA (@WILDOCEANSSA) movement and finally former PM of Ethiopia and co-author of  The Asian Aspiration, Hailemariam Desalegn.
