INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
BY
SAFIYA AHMAD NUHU
Deputy Director (Training), Center for Gender Studies. How do we encourage
social entrepreneurs to avoid the clutches of politicians who take advantage of
such efforts for cheap credit to their political movements?
THE THEME, THE TOPIC
CONCEPTS
• ESD:
• SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT:
• SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS:
• CLIMATE CHANGE:
• CLIMATE ACTION:
• LEADERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT:
-
2030 AGENDA
• The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development is aimed towards ‘transforming the
world’, targeting the eradication of poverty -‘the greatest global challenge’- in
all its forms and dimensions. The Agenda emphatically expresses the
commitment by states to take bold and transformative steps to shift the
world on to a sustainable and resilient path, while ensuring that no one is
left behind. Youth inclusivity has therefore factored as an important feature of
the SDGs.
• Areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet
ABOUT THE ESD YOUTH AMBASSADORS
• The ESD Ambassadors:
• These are participants from the First National Youth Conference on Education for Sustainable Development
that was held on the 3rd October 2017 at Bayero University Kano, which hosted students from five tertiary
institutions (Bayero University Kano; Federal University Dutse; Yusuf Maitama Sule University, Kano; Kano
University of Science and Technology; and the Federal College of Education, Daura) as well as
representatives of the six regional centers of expertise.
• The sustainability ambassadors program is a program of Bayero University Kano, hosted by the Center for
Gender Studies in collaboration with RCE Kano. An ESD Youth Hub has been established with the hope of
continuously promoting the ambassadors through series of initiatives, and engagements that center around the
SDGs. The program as well aims to extend its reach to involve more institutions across the country.
1ST DIGITAL CONFERENCE
SOME KEY MESSAGES
• How climate change touches many lives: older generations enjoyed what we do not have now. Global
warming is endangering our lives.
• Importance of youth environmental action, building capabilities for change, policy making, participating in
community issues.
• Position ourselves for the future, leaving no one behind and adopting a relational approach that is
interconnected and interdisciplinary.
• We are a part of this web of life, we are all connected to nature.
• Energy efficiency as an important factor to saving the environment
• How indigenous knowledge and practices influences behaviour and how this can be used to achieve
sustainable development.
• COVID 19 exposed some positives and negatives –it is a call for action.
• The new normal: Look at it as an opportunity, it opened up a world that can change, the change happens to
some
• Building back better rather than getting back to the ‘old’ normal.
SOME TEASERS?
• HOW CAN WE BUILD ON WHAT WE LEARNT POST COVID?
• WHAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE THERE ?
THE OPPORTUNITY IS BETTER NOW THAN IT EVER WAS
How??
THE SDGs
• For young people in particular, the 17 SDGs are an indicator of opportunities, many opportunities are tied
around them, and importantly, there will be action in these areas -work, opportunities, etc.
HOW CAN WE CONTRIBUTE TO THE CHANGE?
