Seeking students to introduce recycling and reuse in Ibadan, Nigeria
In Nigeria, agriculture and food waste along with single-use plastics represent significant sustainability challenges that are especially problematic in crowded city markets. Organized waste collection is infrequent and refuse is dumped on city roads, resulting in environmental and health hazards. With no formal efforts to promote recycling or the reuse of commercial products, the management of waste is not valued and resulting environmental impacts continue to compound.
As an architect and community leader living and working in Ibadan, Nigeria, I am committed to introducing recycling and reuse with a focus on urban planning and sustainable cities. I invite UB students who share a commitment to sustainability and social innovation to contribute to the following initiatives that we will be co-creating through this project challenge:
