In this episode, the WAGES podcast speaks with the Planning Officer of Wassa East District Assembly and the Executive Director of Recycle Up Ghana about the impact of environmental circular training on women and youth to build sustainable and environmentally-focused businesses in extractive areas in Ghana. Recycle Up Ghana, an NGO that empowers youth to develop local economic solutions for environmental problems walks us through the baseline study they conducted for WAGES beneficiaries. Listen in as we discuss the circular economy trainings they conducted in the Western Region in September. This interesting roundtable discussion is led by our Environmental Advisor, and further looks into how district assemblies can support green business development in their communities.
