Our way of life is destroying our environment, our selfishness is making us blind, we communicate through a virtual world and forget the real life, and people claim they are more connected thanks to social media but in fact, they are more separated, more broken.
The climate is changing, the earth is hotter. Scientists say 2016 has been the hottest year record and that trend looks set to continue this year. Sea ice is melting, reefs are disappearing and the sea is full of plastic.
Ghana also has a huge problem with the plastics all over the country, the illegal mining….We want a better future for our children.
It is time for us to take responsibility and act before it is too late. Individuals, groups, institutions and governments need to work together. We must change our habits and act responsibly for the future of our children. It is not too late if we act now.
WAKE UP is here to move all of us to start to act as citizens of the World, to give a better future to our children. This is to sensitize everyone around the World and also the Ghanaian audience about their way of life and the responsibility to improve our environment which has become a catastrophe “Act now before it is too late”
