Yaba College of Technology has been involved largely in promoting the objective of GWIIN since 2002; it has participated greatly in the various awards and events organised by the network in Abuja, Ghana, South Africa, Singapore, United Kingdom, Germany and Iceland .The College continuous support has earned one of its staff Mrs Anene Ibisi to be appointed a member of the panel of judges at the annual awards held in various countries yearly.

 

The college in collaboration with GWIIN recognises the importance of a sustainable environment and as a result participated in the GWIIN Eco Friendly Show 2011 to promote and highlight eco friendly innovative and trendy designs to raise awareness for social change and respect for the environment.
