The world is changing. Just as there are innovations, there are evolving challenges. The fang of terrorism has sunk deep into the social-political structure of the world system. Immigration is becoming a global burden. Technology is disrupting everything. The new world has not spared our belief systems, culture, and philosophy, as dividing lines between the truth and facts blur.

Now, we are fighting for the rights of everything, and everybody: from climate change. It feels like the history of humanity is being swallowed up by liberalism.

TEDxIkeja 2017 engages Thought Leaders to offer innovation, enterprise, and optimism as a path to the future, amidst technological, philosophical, and political revolutions that are unfolding before us.
Hence, the theme of TEDxIkeja 2017: Where Do We Go from Here?

Busayo Oluwadamilare Morakinyo

Humanitarian and Refugee Expert
A core humanitarian and development enthusiast, Busayo is a graduate of History and International Relations from Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko with a Masters’ degree in Humanitarian and Refugee Studies from the Premier University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Oyo State. Busayo believes in the abilities of the Nigerian youths to chart a course for the future, and a Peace Scholar, Peace Ambassador and Thought Engineer, he is aware that a functional system is the panacea to a good governance on which democratic system rests. As a researcher, Busayo connects with the practicality of knowledge, not in the acquisition of certificates; that is why he conducted a research in the North East in October 2016 to find the challenges faced by displaced persons in relations to their needs and aspirations. This drive attracted the ECOWAS Youth Council, and ECOWAS appointed him as the Youth Peace Ambassador in April 2017.
