Our Projects

YouTHink Innovation Festival.

The Excellent Minds Social and Youth Empowerment Initiative will be hosting a maiden campus-wide #YouTHink Innovation Festival  in the second quarter of 2022. This event will be funded by us, and hosted on several University campuses, in collaboration with the EMI Campus ambassadors and other active student organisations.

Over the challenging past year, we have seen how young people continue to be a source of inspiration and hope for Nigeria through their persistence, resilience and innovative solutions. Yet, too often, many young innovators from vulnerable and marginalized communities continue to be left behind. With this in mind, the #YouTHink Innovation Festival seeks to highlight the role of all young people as innovators and solution- makers, as well as celebrate youth-led solutions that contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and COVID-19 response and recovery.

The Festival will feature sessions focused on four thematic tracks, including: Health & Wellbeing, Economic Empowerment & Employment, Digital Technology, and Education.
