ALL GREEN

114 children die every minute due to environmental disorder.

OVERVIEW

The all green project is an environmental project aimed at reducing global warming and pollution. We produce guidance to schools on how to develop and implement their own environmental strategies so as reduce global warming and pollution.
The all green is made up of solution oriented people. We want to reduce the effects of global warming and pollution in our communities by creating awareness in our communities on environmental friendly life style.

FACTS

To deal with climate change, Ghana must cut emissions by 25-40% by 2020, and by at least 80% by 2050. These cuts must be made across society, with all individuals, organizations and communities taking action to reduce energy consumption and find alternative energy sources. In terms of climate change, there is a need for the society to take urgent action to effectively tackle their own carbon emissions.
