Ghana’s Climate Clock Ambassador, Kwame Nsiah-Apau, known in showbiz circles as Okyeame Kwame, paid a courtesy call on the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thompson, on September 14, 2021.
The meeting was to present the Climate Clock to the High Commissioner and have conversations on climate change.
The High Commissioner expressed her willingness to join hands with Okyeame Kwame and all institutions involved to help keep the environment from deteriorating.
“Since its famous launch in New York in September, 2020, Climate Clock teams have sprung up across the world from Chiapas to Kazakhstan, from Korea to Glasgow. Climate change matters in Ghana. If the world heats up by 1.5 degrees, 75% of Ghana’s cocoa-growing land will no longer support the crop.
“Okyeame Kwame and The Climate Clock remind us that time is running out: we can avoid the worst but we need to act fast. In April, Britain committed to the world’s most ambitious emissions reduction target: a 78% reduction by 2035. Let’s keep 1.5 degrees alive @COP26 47 days to go! @Okyeamekwame @UKinGhana,” she wrote on Twitter.
On August 12, 2021, Okyeame Kwame was made Ghana’s Climate Clock Ambassador at a ceremony held at the City Triangle in Accra.
He promised that he was going to do everything in his power to help educate people on the need to preserve the environment.
Also present at the meeting were Beverley Okoye, UK Climate Attaché (British High Commission); Richard Sandall, UK Deputy Development Director; Abigail Foaty, and Communications Manager (British High Commission).
Representing Okyeame Kwame’s management team were Akwasi Boateng (Media and Public Relations), Ernest Appau(Production & Road Manager).
The Climate Clock is one of the most dynamic climate campaigns in the world today, melding art, science, technology, and grassroots organizing, to get the world to act in time.
The project is centred on a simple tool: a clock that counts down the critical time window to reach zero emissions (the “deadline”), while tracking progress on key solution pathways (“lifelines”).
By showing what to be done by when, the Clock frames its critical mission — a rapid and just transition to a safe climate future — and puts it at the very forefront of our attention.
