Executive Director of GCIC to Speak at African Diaspora Investment Symposium 2024

Ruka Sanusi, Executive Director of the Ghana Climate Innovation Centre (GCIC), has been invited to speak at the prestigious African Diaspora Investment Symposium (ADIS24) in California. The event will take place from March 20th to 22nd, 2024.

Ruka Sanusi will address attendees on the topic of “Transformative Education: Climate Change Literacy and Learning” on Thursday, March 21st, 2024, at 3:45 PM PST.

Bringing her extensive expertise as a management consultant with experience spanning Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, Ruka Sanusi will share insights gleaned from her leadership at the Ghana Climate Innovation Centre. With a focus on interrogating climate change literacy and learning, her session will emphasize the critical role of education, and particularly business and or executive education, in equipping individuals, businesses and organisations with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and address the global climate crisis.

The session will explore pertinent questions such as:

  • How can climate change literacy and learning empower individuals with knowledge and best practices to address the global crisis?
  • In what ways are countries integrating climate education into education systems to promote a more environmentally conscious and responsible society?
  • How do we empower people to make informed decisions and take meaningful actions toward a sustainable future?

Recognizing the vital role of educational institutions, NGOs, governments, corporations, and individuals in combatting climate change, Ruka Sanusi will advocate for the prioritization of climate change literacy and learning within the whole of society learning and education systems. Such efforts, she argues, will foster a more environmentally conscious and responsible society.
