Call to participate in ZERO: The First Climate Radio Broadcast at Ain Shams University in Cairo - DEADLINE UPDATED-
a 24-hr translingual radio broadcast exploring climate mitigation and decarbonisation through the theme of numeracy
This year spatialradio.live, with the support of The British Council in Egypt, is partnering with Ain Shams University Cairo to develop a broadcast called 'Zero' with the subtitle Numeracy Narratives for Urban Resilience. This broadcast will take place November 10 and 11 and will overlap with COP27 taking place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
Zero explores the role of storytelling about calculation and computation in climate resilience, mobilising student leadership in support of collaborative decarbonisation and urban resilience approaches by universities, communities, governments, and businesses.
Around this numeracy narrative, we have developed segment themes for the programming, including Earth Construction, Calculation Beyond Control, Negative Engineering, and Regenerative Economy.
