Ambitious Africa Nigeria Hosts a Sustainability and Circular Economy challenge for University students
From the 1st of April, 2021, Ambitious Africa Nigeria has been running a webinar series for Masters students across Nigeria to educate them on Sustainability and Circular Economy, and challenge them to create solutions and become ambassadors for a sustainable future.
This webinar series currently has over 50 participating students from schools like University of Ibadan, Babcock University, University of Abuja, Crawford University, Rivers State University, Nassarawa State University, to mention a few. The Sustainability and Circular Economy program features webinar sessions with industry leaders and stakeholders from across the globe, workshops, and a pitch competition where the winner gets a cash prize and incubation.
So far, we have had speakers from renowned organizations like Wärtsilä (Our Official Partner/sponsor), Sitra, Natural Eco capital, Sustory, Covenant University, Fuzu CENGSSUD, and more. The students are also undergoing workshops on design thinking, prototyping, pitching, and more, to enhance their skill-sets and support their ideation and pitch.
The Sustainability and Circular Economy program is run by Ambitious.Africa Nigeria, a local team of global organization Ambitious.Africa. The project will round up in an onsite pitch event on Saturday, April 24th, 2021 at Seminar Room 3 & 4 at the University of Ibadan Hotel, Otunba Subomi Conference Centre, University of Ibadan. There will also be more learnings from industry leaders and ideas generated throughout the program will be pitched.
This project was born thanks to a strategic partnership between Wärtsilä and Ambitious.Africa, based on mutual values and goals to support the youth in building a sustainable future. Read more about the partnership at https://www.ambitious.africa/blog-new-partnerships/ambitiousafrica-and-wartsila.
