IESS of University of Ghana partners with Greener Impact to provide training for Environmental club leaders
The Institute of Environment and Sanitation Studies (IESS) of the University of Ghana through a project “Climate Adaptation through Youth Innovation” (CATYI) under the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) program partnered with Greener Impact International to train teachers and environmental club leaders on how to effectively manage and sustain school environmental clubs to support climate actions in the northern part of Ghana.
The two-day workshop was held in the Farmers’ Hall in Nandom with a participation of over 20 selected teachers from both the Nadom and Lawra districts.
Key outcomes of the workshop include:
- Enhancement of the capacities and the understandings of participants in climate change impacts and effective communication of climate/environmental issues.
- Introduction of participants to additional organizational and material resources that will help them in the formation and management of clubs in order to improve environmental education and action.
- Building of the capacities of participants to become more effective in leading the advocacy and action on environmental education and its inclusion in the extra-curricular activities of students in their respective schools and subsequently districts and the region at large.
Other partners include Oxfam Ghana and the Nandom Deanery Integrated Rural Development Partners (NANDIRDEP).
