Climate Change, Environmental Protection and Disaster Management

World Environment Day

Every year on June 5th, people around the world come together to celebrate World Environment Day. This important day serves as a reminder of our collective responsibility to protect and preserve the environment for current and future generations. Initiated by the United Nations in 1974, World Environment Day has since grown into a global platform for raising awareness and taking action on pressing environmental issues.

It inspires discussions, drives innovation, and prompts concrete actions to protect the natural world and promote sustainable development. In recent years, World Environment Day has played a crucial role in mobilizing support for initiatives such as the Paris Agreement on climate change, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and the global movement to reduce plastic pollution. It has also provided a platform for showcasing success stories and best practices in environmental conservation and sustainable resource management.

Africa Union Day

On Africa Union Day, the Renel Ghana Foundation, in collaboration with its partner from the United States of America, marked the occasion with a meaningful initiative at the Kasalgu AME Zion School in Tamale, situated in the Northern region of Ghana. Recognizing the importance of environmental sustainability and education, the foundation and its American counterpart organized a tree-planting event on the school compound. As part of their commitment to fostering positive change, mango trees were planted, symbolizing growth, nourishment, and the enduring bond between nations. This endeavor not only commemorated Africa Union Day but also contributed to the school’s ecosystem, providing shade, fruit, and a valuable educational opportunity for the students to learn about environmental stewardship and the significance of collective action in building a brighter future for Africa
