REES Africa organised the first organisation led walk against climate change in Africa alongside several sustainability-oriented partners. The five-kilometre walk tagged ‘walk the climate change talk’ commenced on the 5th of May, 2018 at Alausa bus stop, Lagos which is a stone throw from Lagos state ministry of environment and rounded off at Ikeja local government, Lagos.

Strategic partners featuring Alert for Funds, Salpha Energy, Rev Foods and Beverages, Climate Wednesday, The National Youth Network, OVIWCE, Recycle Points, Susty Vibes, girlhubafrica and a number of other green organisations were in attendance and showed support in educating the masses on the subject of environmental sustainability. The walk had about a hundred individuals in attendance engaging the public in one on one sensitization about the effects of climate change and how their little actions could influence their environment.

The Walk was also supported by The Lagos state government who provided security and traffic control personnel for the 5km walk against climate change.

The walk commenced at about 8 am; and after reciting the second stanza of the Nigerian Anthem, a ten-minute climate change speech was rendered by a representative of Ministry of Environment, by the name Dr Durojaiye ( Scientist, climate change unit). Flyers made from climate-friendly sources were shared in English and Yoruba.Placards gotten from cartons were also shared to aid recycling.

In totality, about a thousand people were reached out to-of which most knew nothing about climate change.
The 5k walk came to an end at the Ikeja Local Government Secretariat after 4 hours of waste and dirt picking, sensitization, chants and passer-by education in Climate change.
