Trees from Climate Art (TfA)

TfA is an offshoot of Naija Climate Now, was officially announced on November 1, 2021, at the Italian Consulate in Lagos during the unveiling of COP26 Virtual Climate Art Gallery. The event preceded Naija Climate Now Exhibition, hosted by Deputy British High Commissioner Ben Llewellyn-Jones in October 2021.

TfA aims to mobilise young people creatively and innovatively to care for the environment whilst preparing them as green innovators, creators, entrepreneurs, designers and technologists for climate change. The project will introduce Hydroponics Farming and Entrepreneurship Education at the participating schools.

The Economic Trees will help restore life quality in school communities, contribute to the environment, reduce climate change, save water, purify the air, provide renewable energy sources, air conditioning, erosion control, reinforce soil and prevent water pollution. 

The Climate Action Story


The Climate Action campaign began in January 2020 with Solution17 for Climate Action in Africa (CAA). The project was designed to spark creativity among young people in building the desired future through Climate enterprises; the goal is to promote the natural environment, Green Entrepreneurs and prosperity in different communities. The project, which produced 17 Climate Enterprises and 17 Climate Art, was launched by United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed on September 25, 2020.

In 2021, Solution17 for Climate Action scaled to Naija Climate Now with the support of the German Consulate, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria and Sterling Bank Plc to develop solutions to climate adaptation, green economic recovery, and low-carbon development for Nigeria.

Tree From Art was launched on April 7, 2022.
