I hope to be part of the innovative network of young minds and experienced professionals that are inspired and passionate about the SDGs. This will be a good platform for me to meet like-minded people aspiring to contribute and experts that are already contributing to the SDG respectively. This will allow me to listen to other creative ideas, and constructive criticism on my ideas to push my ideas beyond the current limit to make them simple and practicable in the real world. I hope this platform will help me guide my ideas to transition from paper to a business that will help contribute to the SDG.
I am an ardent environmentalist and an advocate for sustainable forest management. I hold a National Diploma and Higher National Diploma in Forest Technology and a Bachelors of Forestry (Forest Production and Products) from the prestigious University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
It all started during my service year, where I cultivated the habits of going to secondary schools telling them about why we need to conserve. This shaped me more. I was able to develop a more climate conscious community through these simple acts.
