FOLLOWING OUR FIRST NILE GATHERING IN JANUARY 2013, WE WILL IMPLEMENT A WIDE RANGE OF CREATIVE, COLLABORATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE PROGRAMS INCLUDING:
Using a boat made of recycled water bottles, a collective of Nile Project musicians and environmental educators will sail down the river, from the Mediterranean to Aswan in 35 days, performing concerts complemented by participatory workshops where local audiences learn about the Nile’s cultural and environmental fabric.
Camps: annual summer camps for young musicians from the 11 Nile basin countries. During the day, they explore local ecosystems and in the evening, they express their learning through music.
An educational initiative that offers a holistic approach to Nile river ecology and its inhabitants with a multidisciplinary curriculum exploring history, geography, cultures and ecosystems of the Nile basin.
Complementing the Nile Tour, this will be a web-based dialogue platform where Nile citizens can share their perspectives on the river through live conversations as well as short-format videos.
A conference featuring scientists, thinkers and artists with Nile-related ideas worth spreading.
NILE ENTERPRISE AND FELLOWSHIP
This platform will channel newly acquired cultural and environmental understanding towards concrete action. Partnering with social enterprise organizations such as Ashoka, the project will train and empower East African youth to develop innovative solutions that address social, cultural, environmental and economic challenges relevant to the Nile.
