Dear friends,

It has been a month of dialogue with stakeholders and change makers. From policy change deliberations to situation reports on climate change and digital literacy. We are glad that our presence was felt through all of these events. 

Here is a look at some of the activities we engaged in this past month.

Maiden Webrangers Summit

The Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC) through its Digital Inclusion and Safer Internet (DISI) program hosted the maiden edition of the webrangers Nigeria Summit themed: ‘Raising Online Safety Super Heroes’,  in Abuja with a total of 11 schools in attendance.

Web Rangers is an initiative of Google was created to develop digital literacy programmes, that allow young people to gain critical skills and knowledge around online safety, which they use to create innovative campaigns that promote safe internet usage and digital rights across the globe. 

A major highlight of the event was the award presentation to the Deeper Life High School, who emerged the winners of the 2022 Webrangers Trivia challenge where they were tasked to develop online safety questions in the form of a game. Each member of the team went home with a smartphone and collectively the sum of Four Hundred Thousand Naira.

We Were at the OGP Summit in Morocco

For the first time in many years, reformers from Africa and the Middle East met in person to advance the open government agenda at the Open Government Partnership summit in Morocco.

Our CEO Jubril Shittu attended the summit and spoke on a panel titled "Transforming Social Movements into Actionable Plans," noting that civil society organizations play an important role in shaping and overseeing public services.

Lending Our Voice at the Climate Change Media Summit

Nigeria has experienced severe flooding in recent months, displacing and affecting thousands of people. Understanding climate change is critical, and as stakeholders, it is our responsibility to raise awareness, particularly in rural areas. As a result, a Climate Change Media Summit was organized by the Centre for Journalism Innovation and Development (CJID).

At the summit, PPDC participated through a panel discussion. The summit's goal was to dissect a series of climate change research papers produced this year as the world prepares for the United Nations Conference on Climate Change.

Here is an article written by our CEO for Premium Times on the subject.
