The Young Visionaries Exhibition, a project of Gracefield Island, was planned with the aim to give young people a platform to exhibit their talents or business. It was conceived as opportunity to share ones knowledge, experience, and expertise with young individuals and to empower them in a community that facilitates collaboration, entrepreneurship, continuous learning, and growth.
Studio Elementals’ Director Stefanie Adisa Theuretzbacher was one of the panelists for the panel discussion “Integrating Young Innovators in Building Sustainable Cities” among other speakers such as Ferdinand Agu (Director, Gravitas Investments Ltd), Karn Gulati (Director of Strategy, 9mobile), Mary Ojulari (MD, Weststar Associates Ltd Mercedes-Benz NIG).
In her presentation, Stefanie delved into the elements that contribute to a city’s sustainability. She explored the concept of green buildings, examined sustainability within the specific context of Nigeria, and explained the pivotal role architects play in fostering sustainability. Additionally, Stefanie discussed strategies for integrating young professionals into the endeavor of constructing sustainable cities.
The GVIP Exhibition was a physical event planned on Gracefield Island, Lagos, to promote networking and growth among young professionals through art, culture, technology, and social engagement.
