Accra, March 31, GNA – The Green Diversity Foundation (GDF Africa) has marked the International Day of Zero Waste with a call on young people to play an active role in reducing the impact of waste to promote sustainable development.  

Mr Hobson Agyapong, Executive Director of GDF Africa, said young people constituted the future of the planet, making it critical for them to be involved in solving the world’s environmental challenges.  

“Young people are the future. We cannot neglect them. If we decide to solve the problem without involving them, in the end, we know definitely we will also leave, and we will not get people to continue the process.
