Wow, this is cool. Was there an earlier email sent out about this? I'd love to be there, but I'm busy.

Hi Peter,

We’ll have the crew arrive at 8PM. We’re going to be attending only one workshop that is on the 10th. 

Also If possible we will need to speak to coaches who are helping people repair their stuff. 

Happy New Year,

My name is Petra, Assistant Production Manager reaching out again on behalf of Alhurra to feature Fixit for an episode for Alhurra's new show, The Road to Zero.

Our show, The Road to Zero, follows the race to zero GreenHouse Gas emissions by changing the way we make things, consume things, and grow things. Scientists warn that the world is getting warmer due to human activities. The show shall address the big question of why we need to get to net-zero in the fields of transportation, manufacturing, buildings, and agriculture.
The show is to investigate initiatives and/or existing solutions on how to reduce carbon emissions.

Our network, Alhurra, is a U.S.-based public Arabic-language TV channel targeting the MENA region and funded by the U.S. government.
Alhurra is part of Voice of America, the largest and oldest U.S.-funded international broadcaster producing in 47 different languages.
making it biodegradable to keep plastics out of landfills and the sea.

Our vision is to film the fun community-based workshops where neighbors, friends and families work collectively to learn how to repair broken items.

Please reach out if you have any questions about our inquiry.
