350.org Global Power Shift Nigeria held its final activity on 15th November, 2014 at Firo village of Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi State, North-eastern Nigeria. The orientation was organized in collaboration with Climate and Sustainable Development Network, north-east zone (CSDevNet), PACJA, and FACIS. The ecological (climate-friendly) agriculture orientation was aimed at supporting local famers especially those that are hit hard by drought as the result of climate change to adapt to the current climate change challenges in the entire north-eastern, Nigeria.

Government and other stakeholders were also called upon to change their business as usual stance of overreliance on dirty energy and to invest in alterative clean and sustainable energy sources that will protect the Nigerian environment from continuous pollution and degradation.

The orientation which was attended by 31 farmers and youth environmental activists, and focused on empowering the participants with knowledge and technical skills in eco-friendly agriculture in order to boost their farm production and eliminate chemical pollution. The farmers and youth now have a unified voice to protect their environment and planet from the dangers of runaway climate change at their level.


50 participants were invited but only 31 were able to attend because of the current security challenges in the Nigeria’s north east region.
