PHOTO SPEAKS: The VERDANT with Wonne Afronelly “My Environment My Wealth”
“My Environment My Wealth” is the Media Advocacy Program, an interactive Live Program on Environment for Media Stations in Nigeria. It is the first of its kind in Nigeria currently airing on Radio Rivers 99.1FM every Saturday, 8-9am. Apart from media advocacy, we carry out social projects that have over the years incorporated youths into our system hence realizing one of our aims – raising #under30CEOs and competent leaders in society. Other aims of the Project is to inform, promote awareness, enlighten, entertain and educate society about advocacy for the environment in order to curb the increasingly alarming environmental challenges; hence enhancing the understanding of society to realize that these environmental hazards are not just a government problem but “the people problem” by integrating all and sundry to take action for the environment.
