On January 14, 2011, we held a Live Tweet-chat About Young People and Climate Change in Nigeria that attracted over 60 participants from 12 countries with Rev Nnimmo Bassey, Chair, Friends of the Earth International, as key Presenter. In February, we will be launching our "Climate Change and Biodiversity Education Project" with a Young Professional Forum on Feb.19th 2011 with key speaker Otive Igbuzur, Former Country Director actionaid Nigeria and former Head of Campiagn,Actionaid International speaking and, hopefully, attracting IUCN Local Partner, Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) to participate in a Climate Parliament to be held in Lagos in March.

Our biggest event planed for the year is a Naija PowerShift 2011. We don't know how we will do this for now, but we believe that it will hold and it will be a "Win for the Future" as COP17 comes to Africa. We hope that you will continue to support in any way you can.
