    According to Amoke, one project that particularly piqued the interest of the ministry was the “Green Hangout.”

    “This initiative is a biennial event that brings together stakeholders from six key sectors: government, private industry, civil society organizations, development partners, academia, and the local community.

    “The Green Hangout serves as a platform for the cross-pollination of ideas and the examination of both global and local issues concerning climate change and environmental matters in a comprehensive manner.”

    He added that the upcoming edition of the Green Hangout is divided into three distinct sessions. The first session will feature a presentation by a renowned climate change expert. The second session will showcase the achievements of successful social entrepreneurs who have effectively addressed environmental challenges, particularly those linked to climate change.

    “The third session will host a panel discussion, with each sector’s representative engaging in discourse surrounding topics raised in the preceding sessions.

    “Our optimism abounds that this partnership will yield mutual benefits and significantly contribute to the battle against climate change, both within the state and on a broader scale,” he disclosed.
