Our A B C ON SKILLS FOR SDGs -Preneurship Campaigns project was birth due to the high level of ignorance, poverty, hunger and injustices with inequalities among the developing world. Especially, when I was invited to the HLPF of the UN in 2016 as one of the Global Innovators for the SDGs by the UN STI forum, thus, we were moved to build this bridge and meet the social challenges of our time. Hence, these campaigns are geared towards teaching all on what to do with the UN SDGs.

Please explain how your selected topic areas are influenced, in the local context of your project (1,000 characters).

Taken for example, the Niger Delta where I was born and still live and works as a social entrepreneur, the incessant restiveness among the youths as being fueled by social injustice, low level of education, high rate of poverty and environmental degradation. Thus, in order to solve these multifarious challenges, we need a holistic approach through a global platform. And this platform and approach is what the SDGs represent. A set of universal bridge from conflict to sustainable peace and development. Thus, on this platform of transformation through the SDGs, we now anchor our A B C ON SKILLS FOR THE SDGs- Preneurship Campaigns in order to educate, mobilize and empower even the poor grass-root people to partake and reap the benefits. Thus, through these holistic principles, poverty, extreme hunger, injustices and social inequalities with poor environmental issues and climate change could be understood and properly tackled.
