The Environment

WITIN sensitizes the public on  responsible and sustainable practices to preserve the environment.  Over the years we have reached out directly to thousands of organizations across the country on the urgent need to go green. Internationally, WITIN continues to engage via policy dialogues on environmentally sound reuse and recycling schemes for developing nations. 

WITIN is in special consultative status with the United Nations.

'' Without an excellent environment, our humanity trust and equity value-chain will be unsustainable and worthless.''

E-Waste Teaching aids for schools

WITIN’s teachers.ng project employs low-cost and environmental teaching resources such as open source softwares and use of discarded computers to educate children in slums, rural and remote communities. Re-use of old computers for hardware classes greatly reduces e-wastes which are dangerous to the environment;  saving carbon emission and energy

Every system in the world must have “sustainability by design”. This 2020  e-Waste Hardware-Showpiece serves as excellent teaching and systems design model to be proposed to governments for  realization of the SDGs, as follows:
[SDG1,2]– poor people earn revenue from ewaste collection
[SDG3,6]– Harmful tonnes of wastes removed from environment
[SDG4]– Education of kids on ICT foundation, equality, inclusion, climate change and “sustainability by design”
[SDG5,8]-jobs for artists; showing gender equality
[SDG7]-Affordable and clean energy
[SDG 10,11,12,13,14,15].  Responsible Consumption and Production; Climate Action; Life Below Water; Life on Land
