Campaign: The 25th is the D-day! We’ll start at 3pm with a rally / campaign on climate change awareness and other environmental issues. We intend to highlight the role and contributions of students to climate change and its solutions. The meeting point is the Campus Auditorium.
This is important because some students believe that climate change is a country~level issue that doesn’t have any thing to do with students. We’ll address some of these issues during the campaign throughout campus.
Seminar / Grand Launch: The last day (26th) is the grand finale of the week and will commence with the grand launch of our weather forecast application software! The software was built by one of our students and provides daily and weekly weather information for Minna, the city location of the University. Following the launch, there will be a workshop/seminar where we hear from invited speakers and participants who are contributing towards climate change awareness in Nigeria.
There will also be a paper presentation from the State coordinator of NESREA on environmental regulatory issues. We believe that at the end of the week,students will be encouraged to get involved in climate change campaigns. The meeting point is the Campus Auditorium.
