About

GreenGh Logo

Ghana is a West African country that sits below the Sahara desert and above the Gulf of Guinea. It is a coastal country with a landscape covered in rich tropical forest and contains the largest man-made lake in the world, Lake Volta.  A country with an economy built on agriculture, Ghana boasts of botanical gardens and animal sanctuaries but mismanagement and mass urbanization has caused an exponential rise in environmental degradation.

Being ‘green’ means different things in different places. What does it mean to be green in Ghana? What can be done to introduce greener policies and cultivate greener attitudes? How can the cultural practices of the past that preserved the land be re-introduced into a modern Ghanaian society? The dialogue takes place here… join us and let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.

    We’ve been following each other on Twitter but I’ve not taken the trouble to know you better, until now. My interest in environmental issues was the key reason for me to leave my job as an insurer (I’m a Chartered Insurer) to pursue further studies in Public Policy (specialising in GeoGovernance) at the University of Potsdam, Germany. Having been here (Germany) and seeing how environmentally conscious the Germans are, I realise we have a long way to go back home. But people like you give me hope. Thanks for your effort.
