In preparation for Nigeria’s biggest youth event The Future Awards 2012 set to take place on Sunday 26th August 2012, the Central Working Committee for the renowned award show has announced its town hall meeting in June.
The town hall meeting will be hosted by Taruwa – an organisation for young professionals committed to nation building.
Ohimai Atafo (Nigerian Fashion designer/Chairman of Central Working Committee) sheds more light on the town hall meeting, saying “This is yet another innovation from Nigeria’s most respected youth platform. The idea is to have a town hall meeting targeted at the broad sectors that the awards is interested in. You will remember that this year’s categories were segmented into Innovation, Creativity, Entrepreneurship, Entertainment and Excellence in Public Service and these town halls are focused on these”.
On Tuesday 26th June 2012, the Taruwa/The Future Awards will hold a town hall meeting at the Bogobiri House, 9 Maitama Sule Street, off Raymond Njoku Street, off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos by 6:30 PM. Themed “Conversations for Change”, the meeting will focus on the various criteria for nomination in these categories - Excellence in Service (Government), Excellence in Service (Journalism), and Excellence in Service (Corporate). There will also be another town hall meeting with the Creative Enterprise Series in conjunction with the British Council on Wednesday 27th June 2012 in these categories - Designer of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year (Style) and more.
