Abiodun Emmanuel Aina is the founder of Step-Up Green Climate Warriors Initiative.
My name is Abiodun Emmanuel Aina. I’m the Founder of Step-Up Green Climate Warriors Initiative. I hold a Masters’ Degree in Economics with minor and allied courses in Environmental Science from University of Abuja, Nigeria. I conducted a research focused on Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Output in Nigeria. I recently got Awarded for an Internship Position with Global Center on Adaptation for Young Leaders Program 2020 in Rotterdam and Groningen, Netherlands and was also Nominated for Young African Leaders Award by African Youth Architects 2020 in Morocco. Abiodun was a Fellow at the 2019 World Youth Forum Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt and was recently appointed as a Member of Global Youth Climate Action Initiative.
My community impact or project was centered on Environmental Awareness and waste disposal management with proximity to household tagged “Make Gwagwalada Green” which was carried out in Abuja and previous project executed in Ogun state. The objective of the project was focused on training young climate warriors in secondary schools, massive sensitization at the grassroots level to communities on climate change education and how to discourage indiscriminate waste disposal. The idea is to make the young ones focal points of change within their schools and respective communities while setting a pace of difference in their choices and lifestyles as they grow older.
he contemporary global ecological breakdown concerns in the media have profoundly fascinated my curiosity in becoming a passionate climate change activist and also to be part of the solutions the world needs at this crucial moment in history.
In words of Greta Thunberg, “No one is too small to make a difference” so let keep making positive impacts in our small communities by fighting a just cause and making our voices count globally while history is made.
