On Wednesday, March 13th, 2013, Bailiff Africa will host the first of weekly Twitter conversations focusing on environmental issues in Africa. The maiden edition is titled: Dustbin Nation – The Nuisance of Waste in Nigeria. During this debut edition, we will discuss the menace of indiscriminate waste disposal in Nigeria and the impact on the environment as well as the impact on people. Each session will hold from 6:00pm – 7:30pm (NGR time), during which several organizations and people on Twitter will participate using the hash tag #BailiffIssues.
We’ll take questions from participants and engage in discussion with facts, figures, opinions and suggestions all with the goal of enlightening one another on the reality of environmental devastation in specific African contexts. From Climate Change to Population Crises to Droughts and Floods, we’ll cover a variety of topics one Wednesday at a time. Every tweet, re-tweet and counter-tweet is a step closer to achieving our goal of sensitizing the African youth population on environmental issues and initiatives in order to mobilize change from this corner of the community.
Our Weekly ‘Bailiff Issues’ sessions are fun, relaxed and informative. Every voice counts in saving the world, especially yours.
