Key discussions included Women in Renewable Energy and the shift to low–emission economy.
Speaking to Mrs. Portia Adu Mensah who is the national coordinator for 350 Ghana Reducing Our Carbon, said, they are young activists who believe that the grassroots must hear about renewable energy, and climate change.

According to her, women are increasingly more vulnerable than men to the effects of climate change in villages and rural areas. Women regularly act as guardians of natural and household resources. Women working in these circumstances make decisions that have an effect on the environment. Climate Change becomes a stressor that intensifies women’s vulnerabilities.
