“Over the years, I've always dreamed of a world where waste management wouldn't pose as a major issue as it is today and I strongly believe that the lasting solution to this perennial waste problem is quality education. One which emphasizes the importance of proper waste management, and adverse effects of dumping. This would serve as the most effective preventive measure not just the curative measures alone which is adopted by most groups today and i choose to work towards achieving this goal to the very end with the help of the Millennium Fellows.”

3REs aims at providing quality physical and mental awareness on the importance of proper waste management for the students of the University of Lagos. We are passionate about inculcating a proper waste management culture in over 5000 students this semester. We're very excited to be a part of the millennium campus fellowship as we get a chance to promote the SDGs alongside great individuals who share this same goal and we look forward to accomplishing great things with the fellowship.
