As the world increasingly shifts from fossil fuel power to emissions-free electrification, recycling batteries is considered a key strategy in the fight against climate change.

In the new Net Zero show, Net Zero Speaks With Gibson Kawago, Climate Activist Chibeze Ezekiel interviews Kawago, the Founder and Chief Technical Officer of WAGA. WAGA aims to reuse laptop batteries and provide affordable, reliable and durable lithium-ion battery solutions. Kawago also supports future-ready education for over 13 million young people by solving digital problems and raising awareness for environmentally friendly technologies.

“We are finding reliable battery solutions for electric bikes in Tanzania,” says Kawago. “We need to present Climate Change in a good way. In the future WAGA will be repurposing, reusing and recycling batteries.”

The Protect our Planet Movement in association with Planet Classroom has launched the acclaimed Net Zero video and podcast series in which 24 youth climate activists from the Protect Our Planet (POP) Movement in association with Planet Classroom ask international thought leaders working on the environment the big questions as to how their nations are progressing towards their 2050 Net Zero pledges.
