G-ROC (Ghana Reducing Our Carbon) has embarked on an inspired new campaign in Ghana called “Renewable Energy for Communities”.

In the last three years, G-ROC has advocated and fought against a proposed coal-fired power plant, a first in the country, with the support of local, national and international coal conglomerates.

Plans for the 700 MW supercritical coal-fired power project are on a temporary halt, and this has not deterred  Shenzhen Energy Group and  Volta River Authority to relaunch the project. Yet, 350 G-ROC and allies, remain determined to obtain a permanent cancellation of coal options.

G-ROC has utilised community mobilisation and traditional media engagement, and the new campaign will involve tactics including intense lobbying at various legislative levels, storytelling, activism and increase visual content including infographics and audiovisuals exhibitions.
