There is a silent crisis in our education system which requires a particular attention. The pathway to transformative education lies in the concept of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), inspired by UNESCO’s Greening Education Partnership Framework which consists of four pillars: greening schools, greening curriculum, greening teaching capacity & readiness, and greening communities. Unfortunately, initiatives targeted at greening primary schools in Ghana thus far have been somewhat limited, often revolving around the establishment of green clubs, which is necessary but not sufficient for a transformative impact. For a rapidly transformative impact, there is a strong need to involve an entire school ecosystem: school management, teachers, school children, and even school cooks. This is where the Education 4 Adaptation Accelerator (E4AA) steps in, translating the four pillars of greening education into local action with a special focus on plastics and food systems.
