The Green Institute is excited to be a collaborator for the Maker-Majlis during the Global Goals Week in Doha, Qatar. Hosted by the College of Islamic Studies at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University, the Maker-Majlis holds from 22 to 25 September 2019. This event offers a space for transformative dialogue and synergy on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Qatar National Vision 2030, and faith.
At the Maker-Majlis, diverse participants and institutions will come together to share ideas, identify solutions, and develop meaningful partnerships. We will maintain a booth and showcase how our training and research on environmental sustainability and development advances the SDGs in Nigeria.
The Green Institute’s 3-man team led by our founder, Dr. Adenike Akinsemolu, has arrived Education City, Doha. Others are Mr. Oghenekevwe Oghenechovwen and Ms. Leclair.
Dr. Akinsemolu will serve as a Judge for the SDG Awards recognizing Qatari individuals or entities advancing the Global Goals, informally interact and share her expertise with students of HBKU, mentor high-school students, and give one of the Halaqa talks on how some of Green Institute’s initiatives led by children and youth are inspiring adults to act on environmental protection. Oghenekevwe Oghenechovwen will also give a Halaqa talk on plastic pollution in the ocean and how our Trash for Education initiative addresses this environmental crisis.
