Hey Mum! How will you be spending this weekend? Let our list of places to hang out help you have a rewarding weekend with your family.
2017 LASG & NCF Walk for Nature
Walk for Nature (WFN) is an annual nature advocacy event jointly organized by the Lagos State Ministry of the Environment and NCF to create awareness and promote nature conservation and sustainable environmental management for the protection of Nigeria’s biological resources. The event also encourages people to take positive actions and support natural resource management efforts for present and future generations, to reverse the impact of climate change and continuing decline of Nigeria’s wildlife resources in line with the global call for positive action.
Protecting the rich biodiversity that occurs in Lagos State is of global conservation importance as an important route for Afro-Eurasian species of birds and an important breeding ground for the other aquatic species.
NCF has partnered with the Lagos State Government in organizing “Walk for Nature” for the past nine years and has enjoyed tremendous support and cooperation of Corporate Organizations, civil society groups and the public.
The goal of this initiative is that it should be adopted at the National level to be implemented simultaneously in all States of the Federation or at least in the six geopolitical zones.
As people are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious and reflecting this in their everyday choices, the event offers a very good opportunity of growing an organization’s market share, giving competitor advantage and delivering effective brand positioning to the target audience.

Time: 7:00 am – 10:00 am
