The first ever largest youth led environmental summit in Ghana- a single mammoth gathering of young people in our generation to learn, device and discuss strategies and solutions for environmental sustainability in Ghana. It is time to set and shift priorities from the bottom to the top, at all levels of society, from policies to implementation; and encourage, equip and empower our generation with tools, techniques and technology to solve the environmental crisis.
Our generation is faced with unprecedented environmental crisis and challenges:
They are hoping to raise $10,000 for Power Shift.
The funds will be used to pay for accommodation, transportation and subsistence (meals and refreshment) of the hundreds of young people traveling from all length and breadth of the country – from all the 10 regions of Ghana for the 3 days mammoth gathering.
They will also pay for the summit venue and space, summit materials/stationery and honorarium for some selected resource persons, experts and trainers who will be training participants.
If they are not able to raise their target funding, we will have to cut down on the number of participants for Power Shift who are very qualified and equally passionate about taking action for the earth. They want to prevent doing this and that is why your support means everything to thems.
The youth are the future of Ghana. They are the stewards of the environment and future policy makers and leaders. Ghana needs the youth to protect the environment. The conference has to happen to ensure that Ghana will be protected from the ravages of climate change. If the young people of today are not equipped and empowered to protect the environment, we have little or no chance of dealing with the impacts in future. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated.
Your contribution will make Power Shift possible no matter how small it is. “Little drops of water make a mighty ocean” so no donation is too small. Issues of environmental injustice and climate change affect all of us no matter where we live, so supporting Power Shift in Ghana means protecting the planet no matter where you live.
