Anyone looking for a job, looking for a career change or with an environmentally conscious business idea was in the right place at the "green edition" of the Ghana Job Fair 2022. The fair brought together job seekers, company founders and companies in Accra, Sunyani, Kumasi and Tamale. For many, the sustainable orientation also played a role. A wide variety of training courses were also offered.
34-year-old Albert took part in a training course dealing with business start-ups. This young Ghanaian is currently unemployed. His dream is to become a successful entrepreneur and he already has a specific concept. Albert wants to open a business that packages drinking water in small bags made from environmentally friendly materials. "I want to do something new by using biodegradable materials to ensure that our environment is not littered with more plastic waste." Albert wants to focus on materials that can be transformed by the action of organisms such as fungi and bacteria, allowing them to be reintroduced into the natural cycle. "At the fair I made contacts with experts and I also found the training to be helpful," Albert explains.
