WHAT'S HAPPENING IN GEN-GHANA
THE GLOBAL ECOVILLAGE NETWORK
GEN Ghana is formally part of the Global Ecovillage network and therefore we are involved in co-creating the growth and emergence of GEN-Africa, with technical, moral and financial support from GEN Europe
GEN-GHANA is relatively a new umbrella Civil Society organisation working to create awareness and promote Eco-village concept to development. However, its members have worked and gained considerable experiences over a long period of time in the various components of the Eco-village Concept. GEN-GHANA then becomes the coordinating platform and fulcrum for bringing these Members together to undertake joint initiative, share and learning from each other and to draw on their comparative strength and synergies to facilitate the implementation of actions within the context of Eco-village Concept.
The Perfect Surrounding
The current aim of GEN Ghana is to utilize its network of members to spread ecovillage strategies across Ghana and to form a joint and stronger advocacy platform. GEN Ghana is today a registered network of 16 civil society organisations from all regions of Ghana that believe in and work for environmental sustainability, environmental governance and sustainable development. GEN Ghana’ purpose is to enable villages and communities to become more sustainable and resilient through increasing local food production, renewable energy integration into communities as well as advocacy in sustainable development issues at the local, regional and national levels.
