GHANA: Government Officials, Youth Activists and Music icons unite to launch Climate Clock campaign

Accra, Ghana. — On Thursday, August 12, International Youth Day, Ghanaian Youth Climate Activists will officially present a CLIMATE CLOCK to the Mayor of Accra Mohammed Adjei Sowah, and popular Hip Life Musician and humanitarian, Okyeame Kwame. The clock will soon be delivered to President Nana Akufo-Addo, who serves as co-chair of the UN Sustainable Development Goals program. The event in Accra City Triangle Park will officially launch the #ActInTime campaign, which will be using the CLIMATE CLOCK to push leaders to confront the climate crisis at the massive scale required to avert the worst climate impacts.

 

Along with speeches by youth climate leaders from 350 Ghana – Reducing Our Carbon (GROC) and Global Youth Empowerment Movement (GYEM), AbibiNsroma Foundation (ANF), Green Africa Youth Organization (GAYO) dozens of youth will be planting trees in Accra City Triangle Park, named after the famed African Independence leader.

The event comes in the wake of a new UN IPCC Report describing the climate crisis as a “code red for humanity” that must be addressed immediately.

#ActInTIme Ghana will also be launching an open participatory process inviting stakeholders to submit climate proposals that will become part of a parliamentary resolution.

 

At the event, Ghanaian Hip Life Legend and Internationally noted humanitarian Okyeame Kwame will be named Climate Clock’s official National Ambassador for Ghana. His mission will be employing his widespread popularity to help mobilize communities to engage with government officials in making greater climate commitments in the months surrounding the upcoming UN Climate Summit, and ensuring that the government then follows through. He will also lend his voice & presence at the COP26 in America, November 2021.

The Mayor of Accra, Mohammed Adjei Sowah, will be named the “Chief Patron” of the Climate Clock in Ghana, helping to bring the message of urgent climate action to other mayors across Africa. He represents African Mayors as Vice Chair on the Steering Committee of C40 Cities, an international Climate Leadership Group. He also serves on the Board of the Global Covenant of Mayors on Climate and Energy representing African Mayors.

 

The head of the Tourism Authority of Ghana, Akwasi Agyeman, will also be named as “Patron” of the Climate Clock in Ghana and recognized for his work on eco-tourism. He will be working with the campaign to install a monumental sized Climate Clock in Ghana, similar to the one in New York City, helping to establish Ghana as a climate leader and at the same time establish a new major tourist site.

 

The event will uplift the work of youth climate activists, and serve as a platform to launch the national #ActInTime Ghana campaign – in which the clock plays a central role – and begin a participatory process among Civil Society groups to draft a parliamentary resolution to bring before the Ghanaian Parliament, demanding the gov’t increase their Nationally Determined Commitments before the COP26 UN Climate Summit.
