The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, has hosted a luncheon In honour of members of the UG Plastic Recycling Project.
It was an afternoon of good cheer as the Vice-Chancellor interacted with members. The Vice-Chancellor acknowledged the role played by the volunteers and called on members of the community to support the initiative in order to make the campuses of the University a clean environment.
UGPRP is a student–led initiative with full support from the Vice Chancellor’s Green Project. It is a joint initiative from the camps of two student groups namely Technology without Borders (Recycle Up! Ghana) and Cyzoe-Ghana.
The project is expected to be a continuous and permanent project on the main and subsequently other campuses of the University of Ghana.
It is also aimed at creating an attitudinal change towards plastic waste by instilling a culture of source segregation and recycling of plastic waste to aid the greening of the University of Ghana Campus.
