Event Details

On September 27th, 2014, CUG will be hosting a workshop in Chorkor, Accra. In order to manage solid waste, a number of initiatives have been developed one of which is the 'Solar Bottle' concept. A very low-cost and innovative way to generate electricity. The 'Solar Bottle' was first developed in Brazil to address under-illuminated slums, this simple design idea has been adopted by MIT students and expanded to other developing nations where many low-income homes lack access electricity. This workshop/demonstration will take place in the Chorkor community in Accra, and will involve CUG staff and volunteers offering an all day session on how to create solar bottle's, as we aim to enhance the utilization of plastic waste.
