A documentary film on environmental threats to Nigeria “Nowhere to Run” will be screened on November 22 during the upcoming WAPIC (West African Power Industry Convention) taking place in Lagos from 22-25 November.
“Nowhere to Run” tells the story of environmental threats and unique challenges to security in Nigeria from the perspective of the affected communities.
The documentary has already fostered much debate and discussion in Nigeria, the region and globally. Guest speakers at the event will include H.E Michel Arrion, Ambassador, Head of Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria and ECOWAS, as well as Mr. Amara Nwankpa, Director, Public Policy Initiative, at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation.
“Nowhere to Run” was produced by the Yar’Adua Foundation as an advocacy tool to raise awareness and galvanise communities and policy makers to confront the threat of climate change and environmental degradation. The narrator of the documentary is Ken Saro-Wiwa Jr., the son of the late environmental activist.
