Yaba Green Challenge

The Yaba Green Challenge initiative provided an opportunity for industry and academia to come together and share knowledge and best practices on circular economy, waste to wealth initiatives, entrepreneurship opportunities, sustainable consumption, as well as waste management.

The Yaba Green Challenge was an initiative of Dangote Cement, a Nigerian company, as part of their sustainability week. The company partnered with Yaba College of Technology to design and host the initiative, which showcased students’ innovative solutions related to circular economy, sustainable consumption and waste management. Successful projects were awarded prizes and some of the most sustainable and innovative projects included:

  • Aluminium pull tab and crochet technique for wearable art;
  • Mixed media painting;
  • Use of plastic waste to produce cheaper and better paving blocks/stones;
  • Animal feed from water hyacinth; and
  • Metal scraps for beautiful artworks.
