Four short videos have been screened under the #SDGsStory Hangout, showing different approaches by young people to drive the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Nigeria.

 

This is coming ahead of the country’s #SDGsStory Summit holding in Abuja on Thursday, on the platform of the Nigeria Youths SDGs Network,

 

The videos were screened at the monthly #SDGsStory Hangout, which brings together young people to share some of their works and learn from the works and experiences of others. It is also to ensure that efforts of young people working to champion the Sustainable Development Goals are not limited to communities where they work.

 

Addressing the August meeting, Ambassador of Netherlands to Nigeria, Robert J. Petri, who hosted the meeting, appreciated the cooperation enjoyed by his team from the Nigerian community, stressing the need for strong bilateral cooperation between Nigeria and his country.

 

Among the videos were that of Dapper Exclusive Style Limited, which explained how they are gradually birthing a cycling culture in Nigeria, tied to 10 of the global goals.

 

The other was that of Feminine Folks Initiative, who profiled some of her past projects at the Internally Displaced Persons camps and other hinterlands.

 

The other two were that of Onfoja Foundation and Helen Asimegbe, whose works cantered on quality education and gender equality; goals four and five, respectively.
