All Green Project
Man-made climate change endangers the continuity of humanity and imposes large changes in lifestyles in all countries around the world. To deal with climate change, Ghana will have to cut emissions by 25 – 40% by 2020, and by at least 80% by 2050. These cuts must be made across society, with all individuals, organisations and communities making an effort to reduce energy consumption and find alternative energy sources. In terms of global climate change, there is a need for the society to take urgent action to effectively tackle their own carbon emissions.
In light of these challenges, AIESEC Central University College (CUC) launched the All Green Project in 2010. The project aims to raise awareness on environmental problems by educating Ghanaian students on the importance to preserve our surrounding world. The overall goal is to support a sustainable, environmentally-friendly development in Ghana. The ALL GREEN project wants to give the youth the opportunity to grow in a clean environment and have an impact on future lives and the environmental security of Ghana.
The All Green project is made up of international facilitators who give presentations and workshops which aim at creating awareness on the main topics of Pollution, Deforestation and Recycling. Being solution and practice oriented, the presentations focus on giving simple environmentally-friendly lifestyle tips and will be followed by workshops ranging from artistic recycling projects to introduction of composting or planting trees. The project has already been established in several schools in Accra and has been officially approved by the Metro Education Office. The workshops should be conducted in monthly basis to ensure an ongoing and sustainable learning process. Furthermore, the All Green project also aims to establish Green Clubs in these schools that are to be run by the students to improve the waste management and the tidiness in the classrooms and campus.
This project does not just seek to encourage environmentally-friendly behaviour but also to develop leaders out of Junior High Schools and give them the opportunity to interact with people of the community. The overall aim of the project is thus to train peer-educators to spread the knowledge acquired within their community on a long-term basis.
