In this episode, the WAGES podcast looks at the current condition of waste in Ghana, specifically in extractive areas. In a roundtable discussion led by our environmental advisor, we speak with the leaders of Recycle Up, a youth NGO that is leading the battle to tackle the surging environmental and socio-economic impact that waste is having on society. Through our conversation, we explore how youth in Ghana are at the forefront, devising economic solutions through education, entrepreneurship and job creation to address the challenges in their communities.
