The ninth edition of the Verdant Zeal ‘Innovention’ Series is set to enlighten, address and proffer solutions to how circular economy can be achieved in Nigeria through innovation.

The ‘Innovention Series,’ an initiative of one of the nation’s leading marketing communications groups, is a platform designed to bring both public and private interest owners together to deliberate on issues affecting the nation’s economies and development with a view to charting agenda towards moving it forward.  

Scheduled for November 2, 2021 , this year’s event, which is designed to hold virtually, plans to bring both local and international focus on the current global discourse on circular economy.  

Convener and Executive Vice Chairman, Verdant Zeal Group, Dr. Tunji Olugbodi, noted that, “As a multi-disciplinary marketing and communications Organisation, one key element we have always leveraged and traded is the strategic importance of ideas and how it pushes the frontiers of creativity and innovation.”  

“Innovention is all about ideas ruling the world, which is why we have built the Innovention Series on five pillars: Development Accelerators, Youth Empowerment, Technology for Growth, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership. And we aim to affect a lot of lives with this benchmark”, he added.  

Unveiling the speakers for this year’s event, Olugbodi stated that “this year’s event will have a touch of difference as various speakers from across the world will be speaking on the theme and encouraging others to imbibe the circularity in every aspect of existence”.  

Some of the invited speakers are Soren Bouer, President, Revolve Circular; Fela Akinse, Founder, Salubata; Joanna Bingham, Chief Executive Officer, Footprints Africa, and Oluwaseun Fasuhanmi, Head, Sustainability, Mottainai Africa among others.  

The theme will focus on how to fuse innovation and integration between natural ecosystems, businesses, our daily lives, waste management technology, entrepreneurship and development in Africa.
