Light the way is a global campaign calling on world leaders to keep their promises when they meet in New York on 25th September to adopt the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

In over 100 countries of the world tens of thousands of citizens will unite in one voice to ask world leaders to light the way to a better world by 2030.

On Thursday 24th September, citizens and citizen organizations in Nigeria will gather by 4pm at the University of Lagos, Multi-Purpose Hall to call on the Buhari administration to light the way towards taking urgent action to end poverty, inequality and climate change in Nigeria. 

The event will highlight what the goals are and its implications for our growth as a country.

The light the way campaign featuring Desmond Elliot, a celebrated actor and Lagos State House of Assembly member as the keynote speaker, is hoped to inspire Nigerians to learn about the SDGs and what it means for our national development.

Joining Desmond Elliot will be leading civil society actors from Save the Children, One Campaign, Nigeria Network of NGOs, Climate & Sustainable Development Network of Nigeria, BudgIT, The Future Project, Women Advocacy Research and Documentation Centre and the United Nations Millennium Campaign.

‘’We are thrilled to be observing the light the way campaign in Nigeria at an epoch making event to usher in the SDGs and build national momentum for the goals. Thanks to Action 2015 Nigeria coalition for making this happen and it will be streamed live on social media via #lighttheway, #action2015ng and SDGsng’’ said ONE Campaign Country Representative, Edwin Ikhuoria.
