ESI welcome ideas aimed at promoting environmental sustainability from dimensions including but not limited to environmental awareness and education, hands-on project such as Tree Planting, waste management, plastic-based initiative, among others. While the project is implemented at small scale at this stage, it is envisaged to instil environmental consciousness across African countries through the efforts of the youth.
