Heineken, the world’s leading international premium beer, in its ongoing attempt to enhance the cities of the world, brings the third edition of its Cities campaign to Nigeria. This year’s campaign tagged “Shape your City” is aimed at transforming great cities while broadening the imagination of the new generation city dwellers, inspiring them to contribute their quota to improving their cities.

Heineken is taking this opportunity to call on everyone to visit to share ideas to shape the city of their dreams.

To achieve the #ShapeYourCity campaign, Heineken Nigeria partners with City Shapers, individuals known for using their skills in creating one-of-kind experiences to make their cities more enjoyable for dwellers. They are urban visionaries who have by small actions of their own, contributed to shaping cities across Nigeria.

The selected City Shapers include Bolanle Austen-Peters, Founder of Nigeria’s foremost cultural hub, Terra Kulture; Theo Lawson, Architect of the acclaimed Freedom Park and Kalakuta Museum; and Kenneth Gyang, Director of the award winning films Confusion Na Wa and Blood & Henna.
