#OurLivesMatter

Overview

Last year, Community Organizers, Social Entrepreneurs, Artists, Media Practitioners and Business Executives started a discussion, centered on Social Media and How It Can Be Used to Solve Pressing Community Problems. It was a fascinating discussion witnessed by over 150 delegates and thousands of others via online platforms.

2017 Edition

This year, we are staying on the same trajectory only this time broadening the scope and scale of the discussion to see ‘How Social Media Can Be Used As A Tool For National Transformation.’ This is against the backdrop of what Social Media has become and the heinous things people do with it. As an organization committed to promoting a better future, we see the need to build a critical mass of young Nigerians through this kind of engagement to understand that Social Media cannot close the huge inequality gap in our country; Social Media is not a determinant of transformation but only a facilitator of which the human element is very much needed in transforming the landscape of poverty in Nigeria.
