This year, thousands of potential prospects across the globe submitted different competition components for the #WBGYouthSummit, themed; “Smarter Cities for a Resilient Future”. Sequel to the submission of my 4-page proposal, titled; “#Green4Blue Initiative (Green Tourism for a Blue Economy)” and with respect to my preceding proliferation of green revolution for global infrastructural shift, I eventually emerged the Nigerian Delegate for the World Bank Global Youth Summit 2019, although, ‘circumstantially’, I would not be participating in the ongoing Summit, slated for today and tomorrow.
The ultimate goal of the international discourse is to instrumentalize ideas and policies that would actualize the 13th Goal (Climate Action) of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals – with the ultimate aim to #SaveTheWorld from Global Warming effects and other climate-related hazards.
However, Deo-Volente, my competition component shall be the theme of my 5th book in 2020, which is the articulating of a Long-term Techno-Economic Development Framework for a Coastal Green City.
The GREEN4BLUE initiative is a Maritime-Green Tourism Project channeled towards the realization of the Paris Agreement Goals – as it is in-line with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Under the Article 3, Paris Agreement (2015): “each country must determine, plan, and regularly report on the contribution that it undertakes to mitigate global warming”.
