Agence Future Logo Agence Future Travel log 3: Africa

On the 15th of February, we left for Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Ghana. We worked almost four months in these West African countries.

Several topics were outlined to highlight in West Africa: desertification, energy sources and IT and development. We aimed to conduct depth interviews with at least four experts and ten members of the general population. For the media component we aimed to publish an average of three print articles a month and wanted to collect video-images for web-tv. The experiment at the heart of the creative component continued in an environment much different from what we had encountered during the European section of the fieldtrip.
