Saving Lake Bosomtwe Through Collective Action on Waste
Art Medium: Giant Story Board
Partner: A Rocha Ghana
Location: Abonu and Obbo communities, Ghana
Ghana’s economic growth has coincided with a significant increase in the consumption of plastic products, especially single-use plastics, and consequently an increase in plastic waste. During this CAP, a group of students and community leaders from two communities that share the lake learned innovative participatory-based tools and art to advocate for environmentally sound waste management, in order to prevent the continued contamination of Lake Bosomtwe. Using creative giant story books, the youth educated community members on the problem and encouraged collective action to save this precious resource.
