Ben Enwonwu Foundation panalists talk about recycling of waste to create wealth by gistgirl0: 3:43pm On Jan 24
A foundation, Ben Enwonwu, known for its usual event, Point of View discussion and panel session, held the fourth edition of the event on Friday.

The fourth edition advocates for sustainable cities and communities by promoting interdisciplinary collaborations between professionals across such diverse sectors as government, the arts, science and technology, to highlight the significant role of the visual arts in ensuring policy frameworks that address climate change.

The speakers at the event include, Desmond Majekodunmi, Chairman, Lagos State Urban Forest and Animal Shelter Initiative (LUFASI) who will be discussing, “Making Our Futures: The Intersection of Culture and the Environment”; Sandra Mbanefo-Obiago, Founder and Director, SMO Contemporary Art, presenting a paper on “Waste to Wealth: The Growing Market for Recycled Art, Polly Alakija”; Polly Alakija, and so many others.

It is expected that the different aspects and the dimension of the phenomenon, subsequently conveying to the government, recommendations and creative solutions to negate its impact will be discussed.

This edition also featured presentations by artists on how they have not only adopted environmentally sustainable practices in conceptualizing work from recycled waste but also created wealth, as well as raised awareness and engaged local communities.
