Lufthansa partners UNILAG for Youth Impact Week

Two hundred students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) are to undergo six days of coaching with international trainers courtesy of Lufthansa Group and Help Alliance.

Lufthansa is bringing its internationally-acclaimed Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project, ‘Impact Week 2017’, to Nigeria between October 20 and 26.

During the programme, the participants will learn to develop sustainable business models using various innovation techniques like the innovative ‘Design Thinking’.

They would be expected to come up with innovative solutions in agriculture, healthcare, education, alternative power generation, information technology transportation, and business management.

The university would be responsible for the selection of the participating students from a variety of faculties. The course will also empower lecturers.

“We are excited to have a team of UNILAG professionals, Lufthansa international staff and other experts to come together with about around 200 students to develop their skills, broaden and take on the tasks of thinking about solutions for socio-economic challenges right here”, Robin Sohdi, Lufthansa General Manager, Nigeria, said.

Dr. Sunday Adebisi, Director, Entrepreneurship Centre, UNILAG, said the institution was happy to partner Lufthansa on the programme.

“It is exciting to have the Impact Week in Nigeria and more importantly in University of Lagos to support a life changing experience for our teachers and students by Lufthansa Germany Airlines,” he said.
