Some of our projects which are currently running
We form Eco Clubs in schools. The members of the club are educated on tree planting and then become ambassadors for tree planting. We plant trees on school farms (Agroforestry), stool lands and land that is abandoned like refuse dump, landfill site. This way we are assured of having our trees grow without any abrupt land use change. We do multiple stakeholder consultations with stakeholders like, traditional leaders, school masters and teachers, youth leaders, religious groups and the assemblies for sustainability of the project. With club members we plant indigenous tree species that are threatened. Our aim is to create arboretums in High Schools and communities where students can see and appreciate these tree species and also mitigate climate change.
Trees absorb carbon and release oxygen. If we can innovatively harness these two properties of trees then we can mitigate climate change whiles simultaneously refreshing the air in polluted areas. This is our novel initiative: to plant shady trees around public toilets in Kumasi. Public toilets are noted for their unfriendly smell and offensive odor and climate change is fast approaching but depending on the type of tree and where it is planted both environmental challenges can be solved. And we do this through our Climate Smart Tree Planting Project. By the end of the project in November 2020, we seek to plant 2000 trees around 417 public toilets in Kumasi – places where tree would not have been traditionally planted.
The projects educates student in basic and high schools about the current state of the environment, the impending danger if a restoration action is not taken and help them to kick start a restoration action. It also involves planting trees with the student as an action to mitigate climate change. We seek to plant 5000 trees in 50 schools by June 2020. The core objective of the project is to form Eco Clubs in schools where pupils will be trained as environmental leaders to poilice the environment and the ecosystem at large
Capitalizing on the interest of the youth in media and technology and their growing interest in supporting environmental activities, it will be advantageous to create an online platform that will give the youth opportunity to have fun by sharing posts and commenting on activities that are environmentally related. The platform, like Facebook, should be easy to access and user friendly and should as well provide information on environmental opportunities and how the youth can volunteer. By so doing, the gap between youth involvement in environmental activities and youth availability will be bridged with technology. Project EcoMedia will also be a platform for carbon trading.
