The capacity enhancing project for young planning professionals and PhD students aims at deconstructing White male thinking by reading and discussing literature from Tsitsi Dangarembga, Achille Mbembe, Lilian Thuram, and Felwine Sarr.

In a second step, the study group will analyze the elitist thinking behind the 2052 Lagos State Development Plan, published in late 2022 by the Lagos State Government.

In a third step, the study group will formulate suggestions for a “Decolonized LSDP 2052”.

Applications closed in early March 2023.
