GreenAlert is a quarterly environmental newsletter that is targeted at the youth mainly in school between the ages of ten (10) and eighteen (18) years and is published and distributed by the Green Advocacy Ghana. Statistics give the population of this age group in school to be 3,549,276, which forms about 15.65% of Ghana’s population. Currently, there is no readily available material or newsletter dedicated to environment issues and for environmental information and awareness for this special youth group and a significant population. This is partly responsible for the paucity of environmental knowledge and consciousness among the youth on the environment. GreenAlert is therefore expected to fill this void.
GreenAlert presents environmental issues in the form of short news articles that
- Narrate environmental events, processes or phenomena in a story form
- Highlight current environmental news items and stimulate debate
- Excite interest and curiosity to want to read more
- Motivate the youth to apply environmental knowledge
