The Green Campus Initiative (GCI) is the first campus based environmental advocacy organization in Nigeria. It organizes and consolidates the efforts of Nigeria’s college students on campuses across the country to be catalysts of transformative change. GCI tackles the challenges of climate change and environmental sustainability through innovative academic research, results based green initiatives, building a generation of environmentally conscious, socially conscious student leaders. We train university students and equip them with the tools needed to create Green Initiatives on their own campuses. Through a teach-the-teacher model, we seek to compound of passion for green change around Nigeria.
In the first 8 months of our green journey, nearly 150 university students from 28 universities have been trained with the goal to have a chapter of the Green Campus Initiative at each of Nigeria’s university campuses.
