Association of City Managers in Nigeria (ACMAN) organised an advocacy programme for schools and colleges in celebration of the World Cities Day (WCD) 2022.

World Cities Day (WCD) brings Urban October to an end on 31 October each year. WCD aims to promote the international community’s interest in global urbanization, enhance cooperation among countries and cities in meeting opportunities and addressing challenges of urbanization, and contribute to sustainable urban development.

The Theme of this year’s WCD is Act Local to Go Global.The aim is to advance the technical and political debate on the localization of the SDGs as a comprehensive roadmap to enhance inclusive human settlements and organize political inputs to implement global recommendations in local contexts. Also, to share and hear from best examples of participatory processes and inclusion related to SDG localization that can be extrapolated and tailored to different contexts.

The ACMAN advocacy programme aimed at sentisizing students about environmental conservation and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

One of the event held at HESED ACADEMY in Jos, Plateau state facilitated by Architect Rhoda Tsado-Kunhiyop, where about 50 students were in attendance.
