Mobile journalists Mojo Velo, stopped by to visit some of our youth reporters in Lusaka, Zambia recently, and filmed them as they prepared to broadcast their Saturday morning show. These reporters with the Agents of Change Foundation focus on encouraging action on climate change, environmental sustainability and human rights.

The team of three ‘journalists on bicycles’ make up Mojo Velo, and have been travelling for about 5 months from Cape Town, on their way to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. They are cycling unsupported (fully self sufficient, and relying on the Ubuntu spirit of the people they meet), and will cover as many as 15,000 km on their journey. On their trip, they are sharing people’s stories of sustainability and innovation, challenging negative perceptions of Africa and promoting its innovation, ingenuity and resilience.

Mojo Velo created this documentary short film about their day spent with the ‘Y-Green’ youth reporters from Power FM, and the ‘Great Green Generation’ (or Triple G) youth reporters based at Pan African Radio in Lusaka. The film gives you some insight into the work of the young reporters and the build up to their weekly broadcast.
