SDGs Student Awareness Wake-Day @ University of Ghana (in person event)
March 18 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 amFree
The level of sustainability education and action on climate change in Ghana has been tepid over the past two years, and the advancement of the country’s climate commitments is happening at a slow pace. The impending impacts continue to undo many development efforts and deepen poverty levels. Henceforward, the goal of the SDGs Students Awareness Day is to develop an in-depth action plan to ramp up actions in the area of sustainable development both on campus and outside campus. The event includes a Sustainable Development Movie Screening, Dialogue, and a Vision board Creative Action. It will be student-led event at the University of Ghana. The identified venue is a conference facility at Alexander Kwapong Hall. Our key objective is to exploit the use of problem tree analysis and development of solution tools by understanding the problem in-depth, visualizing the links between the main problem, analyzing the root cause, and designing effective strategies for action.
The lead organization is the Sustainability Week Accra, partners include AIESEC, Youth Action Movement and Amnesty International chapter at the University of Ghana.
Facilitators include, Queen Murjanatu Attah, Nii Noi Omaboe, Jeffrey Adusei and others
