Today we joined the Circular Economy collaborators meetup at the Impact Hub Accra to find bold new solutions to our waste problems in Ghana.

In the end we came up with bold projects which would be championed by GIZ and the Circular Economy Collaborators to move our circular economy forward.

After several months of planning with the #GLF, we had the opportunity to introduce the Ghana National Dialogue on Waste Management under the theme "Nothing to Waste: seizing agro-waste to create jobs and wellbeing."

The dialogue is a continuous process which is meant to identify, shape and connect waste management solutions in Ghana.

Another busy week as multiple events on #circulareconomy storms Accra in this last quarter of this year. Our staff @maabenabobson is at the #UrbanResources and #CircularDevelopment roundtable discussion to foster partnerships to put words into discussion. We are glad to establish our first Circular Economy partnership in #Kumasi with @recycleupgh as part of our #SustainableCommunityProject and Recycle-Up's Incubator Hub. Enough talking, it's time to implement.
