Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 4/7/2012 (1697 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.
Join us at 7 p.m. Monday as Free Press reporter Bartley Kives shares photos and observations from a recent trip to the central African nation of Niger.
In May, Kives tagged along with humanitarian groups as they crisscrossed southern Niger, a country that ranks as one of the most environmentally devastated places on Earth. Nigeriens are dealing with rapid population growth, food-security issues, climate change, regional instability and an overall shortage of resources that may be difficult for Canadians to conceive.
Bartley will share images and thoughts from his time in Niger and will try to figure out what lessons the rest of the world can take from what the nation is experiencing.
