Specific groups (e.g. Youth, Women and disadvantaged groups)
Nene-Uwa Hub Limited in partnership with TVP Adventures and a host of other tourism and environmental enthusiasts would be partaking in a special BEACH CLEAN-UP & TREE PLANTING event to commemorate WORLD TOURISM DAY 2017 and to correlate with this year’s theme which is “SUSTAINABLE TOURISM – A TOOL FOR DEVELOPMENT”.
On Saturday 30th September, 2017, we would be hosting a volunteer BEACH CLEAN-UP & TREE PLANTING holding at the “POINT OF NO RETURN” which is located at Badagry Slave Trade, Badagry, Lagos State. The idea is to create awareness on the benefits of being ECO-FRIENDLY and helping to sustain tourist destinations by reducing environmental impact by being guardians of our natural resources. As one of Nigeria’s prominent tourism landmarks, this beach is the ideal location to carry out a campaign for sustainable tourism. The shoreline is eroding quickly and the white-sand beach is littered with trash from visitors as well as wash-back from the ocean. On the day of the event, we plan for 40 tourism and environmental enthusiasts to join Badagry local residents to clean up the beach. We would also be planting coconut trees along the shoreline as a way of leaving our footprint of impact.
