Environmental and sustainability issues have long been reflected in the College’s programs. The aim of the outreach programs are two folds: to be a responsible steward of human, natural and financial resources by embedding sustainability into every day working practices, and to exemplify change through our behaviour, encouraging the wider human community to work with us to get there.

In achieving this end, the College, in collaboration with the Kili FM radio station based in Moshi town, initiated a weekly environmental program in January, 2007. The Radio Kili Fm is a registered limited liability company carrying on the business of Radio Broadcasting services. The Kili FM, which has a vision to become one of the leading marketing and broadcasting companies in Tanzania, agreed to offer 1 hour to the College each week for the purpose of raising environmental issues of the radio catchment area. Initially the program was broadcasted each Saturday from 1700 hrs to 1800 hrs. Due to time competition with other programs, particularly soccer programs on Saturdays, the program timing was reviewed and it is currently running on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1700 hrs to 1800 hrs.

Radio Kili FM was a choice by the College because it can be easily accessed through the internet (http://www.radiokilifm.com/) and through local radio (FM 87.5).

The program is mostly guided by the National Environmental Policy of Tanzania (1997). It covers policy issues which are: loss of wildlife habitats and biodiversity, deforestation, land degradation, deterioration of aquatic systems, lack of accessible, good quality water and environmental pollution. Other policies, and related legislation, guiding the outreach program include but not limited to: wildlife policy, forestry and beekeeping policy, and fisheries policy. Local and regional environmental issues like connection of poverty and environment, and eco-feminism issues are also discussed in the program.

The program is designed to ensure effective interactions between presenters (College lectures) and the local community, where the radio station is reachable, and uses Kiswahili to ensure that messages are absorbed by the local audience.
