Creative Youth Community Development Initiative, CYCDI, Nigeria’s United Nation Sustainable Development Goals Action Award winner, has announced plans to officially unveilSolution 17, her custom solutions for positively addressing global problems that earnedthe organization the coveted SDG Awards, in Lagos on Tuesday 2nd July, 2019.
Instructively, the United Nations, after due consideration, has also just recently published Solution 17 on its website as Good Practise, Success Story and Inspiring Breakthrough that can be replicated and scaled up to help galvanize the momentum for implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.

Foluke Michael, Coordinator of the project state that it is high time more organizationsin Nigeria are engaged in the line of thoughts that developed the award winning solution, which has now been adopted in three different countries.

“It is our belief that having locally developed a concept that is being applauded globally to address the 17 SDGs with three countries, namely India, Switzerland and Morocco, having adopted it, it is expedient to publicly engage stakeholders in Nigeria on this Model, so that more people, governmentsand organizations can join us in accelerating solutions to tackling identified world problems.

Ms Michael said that CYCDI would be involving as many stakeholders as possible at the event including the corporates, diplomatic communities, and individuals that are committed to the cause. She indicated that the launch event will also feature panel discussions that would engender robust perspectives on the solutions and implementation ideas.

“We have very good rapport with the United Nations office in Nigeria, diplomatic missions and various corporate organizations that would all be fully represented to further contribute to the discourse on the Solutions that has won us accoladesas well ascontribute to the deployment processes.” she added.

Meanwhile, Tayo Orekoya, the Senior Partner at CITC, whose firm has worked closely with the CYCDI to align the solutions to suit different environments, plans and policies, says he is very positive the event would be a major shift for the SDGs stakeholders in Nigeria.

“We are very happy for the level of support and interest we have received following the global impact and acceptance that the solutions by CYDCI has generated. This gives us the confidence that the Nigerian SDG communities have a lot to look forward to at the event” he opined.
