Images: When NCF, Lagos walked for nature

A collaboration involving the Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) and the Lagos State Government through its Ministry of the Environment saw a colourful carnival-like parade in some parts of the city on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

“Walk for Nature”, as the campaign is termed, is an annual event aimed at promoting public awareness for sustainable environmental practices. This year’s theme, “Cleaner Lagos: the Foundation for Sustainable Ecotourism” was described as a clarion call for an ideal city, a healthy city and the essence of making a cleaner environment a top priority.

NCF President, Chief Philip C. Asiodu, labels “Walk for Nature” as “an awareness campaign platform for environmental protection, nature conservation, biodiversity and sustainable development among the citizenry.”
