Fridays for Climate | Boosting green employment for youth in Ghana

 

Through a LoCAL project, the EU GCCA+ flagship supports the “Boosting Green Employment and Entreprise Opportunities (GrEEn)” programme in Ghana. 🌍

This project seeks to create economic and employment opportunities for youth and women through the promotion of sustainable and green businesses. Indeed due to lack of perspectives, young people, which represent a large part of the population, often migrate in search of sustainable livelihoods. 👫🏿

The GrEEn project supports the growth of climate resilient local economies notably with trainings and financial support for green businesses such as plastic waste recycling, the production and distribution of clean cooking stoves, as well as the production of organic horticulture and compost production. 🌱

“Migration should always be a choice, not a necessity. Thanks to the GrEEn project which supports livelihoods and green/circular economy, lots of young people will finally have the choice”
- Diana Acconcia, European Union Ambassador to Ghana.
