Student and PGCourse Participant


Clinton is in his final year of law school at Ebonyi State University in Abakaliki, Nigeria, majoring in Environmental Law and Human Rights. He is also a community and civil society activist, and has been involved in volunteering and community development programs to use advocacy campaigns to influence political agendas related to international development. Clinton was the Sanitation and Water for All Youth Reporter for 2020, where he worked with youth engagement in water, sanitation and hygiene issues. He is also coordinating the #ClaimYourWaterRights campaign in Nigeria, a global mobilization campaign that aims to awaken people to the injustice of their situation and spur them to claim their human rights to safe water and sanitation. Clinton is passionate about Human Rights and Environmental Justice and Sustainability and believes human rights are the best legal protection we have. He is a student in this term’s inaugural Project Green Course and building a recycling project with youth in Nigeria — and believes that as fellow global citizens, we owe it to ourselves to work together to protect our world ecosystems and build better standards of life today and for future generations.
