BoingBoing TV – Green tech and internet in Benin

The BBtv WORLD series layed its focus this time on Benin

to visit the Songhaï Center, a green tech project designed to develop a new generation of “agricultural entrepreneurs,” and foster economic sustainability. [from here]

It’s fascinating to see how African entrepreneurs have a fully sustainable farm, producing goods for worldwide markets and even running an internet cafe.

Everything is produced in a “green” way, one areas waste becomes another areas fuel input. The idea is such a big success that there are more of these centers opening, even in neighbour country Nigeria.

Xeni Jardin from BoingBoing has made a short documentation about it – great video, check it out!
