Who makes the solar programme possible
The use of renewable energies is a requirement of the hour, but they are also an important economic and development factor in many countries of the global South.
How solar energy can be used sustainably and how people benefit from it in the long term is demonstrated by the Jugend Eine Welt Program "Solar Africa!", sponsored by the Austrian Development Agency.
