ATLAS Initiative launches Eco Innovation Club for secondary school students in Lagos

Access to Learning and School (ATLAS) Initiative, a nonprofit organisation that seeks to address issues of inequality in access to education and learning, has launched the Eco-Innovation Club project to promote environmental education and sustainability among secondary school students.

The project, which holds in Oregun Junior High School in Lagos, aims to create a learning space where students can actively engage in eco-innovation, waste management, and sustainable practices.

Furthermore, to formally launch the project, ATLAS held a capacity building session for 10 selected teachers of the school on Wednesday, January 31, 2024. The training was to sensitize them on the importance of environmental sustainability and how they can support the school club.

The teachers in charge will select 50 of their most innovative, brilliant and confident students including school prefects and students to commence the club in a week.

Through hands on activities and programs, the Eco-Innovation Club Project will instill a culture of sustainability, and promotes active student participation in creating a greener, more sustainable future.

The one-year project is funded by GlobalGiving, a nonprofit that connects donors with grassroots projects around the world.

The project is in line with ATLAS’s commitment to promoting environment education and sustainability among young minds.
