“Other components of plastic are also very dangerous; [...] Phthalates are additives that are added to plastic to make it softer, more malleable. It is present everywhere, even in our children's school supplies, like in rulers that do not break.”

This is what Dr. Ahlem Helali Ammari, General Practitioner and Secretary General of the Health and Environment Association, argues during this conference organized by the Heinrich Böll Foundation (HBS), as well as Nidhal Attia, the Program Coordinator of Sustainable Development and Environmental Policies at HBS.

Dr. Ahlem meticulously dissects the impact of plastic on human health in the presence of the two horrified protagonists, who become more and more aware of the issue that is threatening their planet when she explains the phenomenon of “Cyborg Babies”.

Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab.
Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert.
Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience.
Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process.
In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity.
These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand.
Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
