The Lagos State Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, in collaboration with the Public Service Staff Development Centre and others, has launched the Eco-learn Nigeria project to address the issues of climate change.

The project aims to equip public service teachers with the necessary resources and expertise to integrate climate change education into the school curriculum.

The Director-General of PSSDC, who spoke through Mr. Olushola Kolawole at the launch of the project in Lagos on Friday, stressed the key role of youth in securing a sustainable future.

He said, “The future of our planet rests in the hands of the youth, and equipping them with the knowledge and tools to understand and address climate change is paramount.”

The Director of Climate Change in the Ministry of Environment, Mr. Michael Bankole, expressed satisfaction with the Lagos State Government’s proactive approach to climate change education.

According to him, the state’s commitment to training children on climate change, hygiene, and sanitation was laudable.

The representative of the Tutor-General/Permanent Secretary Education District III, Dr. Rita Kienka, said the initiative was a significant milestone in preparing future generations to tackle the challenges of climate change by empowering teachers while paving the way for a more sustainable future for the planet.
