Ghanaian journalist and climate advocate, Kofi Adu Domfeh, has joined a global community of trained Climate Reality Leaders already working together to fight the climate crisis.
He has been honoured with the Green Ring Pin by Former US Vice President Al Gore, founder of The Climate Reality Project.
The Green Ring is awarded to Climate Reality Leaders who have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to their roles as climate communicators and activists.
“The green ring pin is representative of your participation within the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, and we hope that you will wear it proudly whenever you are completing an Act of Leadership or representing Climate Reality in your environmental advocacy work,” said a statement of honour.
Domfeh was part of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps Global Training, a virtual event to train attendees with practical skills and knowledge to build an equitable and inclusive movement for climate action and climate justice.
He says the training has empowered him to continue to educate people and communities about the climate crisis.
“It is everyone’s responsibility to care for the environment. The climate crisis can be tackled when all hands are on deck,” said Domfeh. “We cannot relent in writing about climate change and its devastating impacts; we will strive in educating and mobilizing people to take climate action for a better, green, sustainable future.”
In response to COVID-19, Climate Reality moved programming online to ensure that climate activists around the world could participate in the movement for climate solutions safely and effectively.
More than 10,000 people signed up for the virtual training, which included educational panel discussions, keynotes, and presentations from world-class scientists, NGO, and business leaders, and grassroots organizers.
Kofi Adu Domfeh is the Ghana Bureau Chief of Africa Climate Reports and the Founder/Convener of CLAP Gh – Climate, Livelihood and Agriculture Platform. The environmental group mobilises young professionals to become part of the momentum created by the Paris Agreement on Climate Change to partner all interest groups to share knowledge and take action.
He has now joined a network of more than 21,000 Climate Reality Leaders from 154 countries around the world, working together to build public awareness of global climate challenges, share the good news about the practical solutions in our hands today, and strengthen public support for leaders at all levels of society, who are committed to climate action.
