GGI To Use Tech to Make a Greener Ghana Through The Eco Tour

The Green Ghanaian Initiative (GGI) will embark on a four-month nationwide tour effective October 22, to educate young Ghanaians on climate change and environmental issues affecting the country.

 

Climate change is a very complicated global phenomenon which manifests itself in various ways depending on the ecological zone. Ghana, in particular, is very vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.There continues to be staggering evidence of climate change in Ghana;from the perennial floods, to rising temperatures, to wild bush fires, to the ocean wiping out whole towns in the coastal areas to erratic weather patterns.   

 

Ghana has serious and chronic environmental problems. The country is one of the dirtiest in Africa with one of the lowest populations with access to improved sanitation. As a result, Ghana experiences annual floods, annual epidemic cholera outbreaks, and polluted beaches.

 

The tour will also include an intensive training programme on social media tools for civic engagement as well as an introduction to GGI’s online environmental resource centre.

 

The tour will begin at the University of Development Studies in Wa on 22nd October, 2016.
