INSPIRED PROJECTS TO LEAD DEVELOPMENT
WHAT WE DO
We undertake important researches to help us gain the best approach in addressing sustainable development. We conduct educational researches, climate studies, and biodiversity studies.
EDUCATION, ADVOCACY AND SENSITIZATION
We believe the first step for policy enactment is appropriate education and strategic thematic advocacy. We, therefore, recommend good institutional climate and biodiversity policies, and sustainability actions.
We seek to address, advocate, and raise concerns pertinent to climate. We champion campaigns against global warming and voice out the future climate pattern we want as youth. Through Sustainable Livelihood Hacks, we are able to promote climate-friendly lifestyles such as home-based recycling, cycling, plastic reuse and home gardening.
Eco-Friendly living becomes apparently difficult for most people but to us, living a life that safeguards the environment is our priority. We work on Wetlands and Peatlands Conservation, Marine Littering, Urban Biodiversification, Urban Forestation, and others.
This aspect of our publications consists of monthly Public Lecture Series position statements written by our ardent speakers. The position statement entails suggestions, recommendations, solutions, criticisms, frameworks, and analysis of key social issues in Ghana. Download & Read Report Here

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
YOUTH & AGENDA 2030/2060
This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.
