A lecture took place at the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) on the theme “Global Change; the Conscience of European Fossil Society.” This lecture, hosted by Professor Engineer Michael Marek, the Director and Senior Research Scientist at the Global Change Research Institute Czech Academy of Sciences (CzechGlobe), aimed to provide valuable insights into global climate change, mitigation strategies, and adaptation measures.

The event drew an engaged audience, including students, climate experts, environmentalists, and foresters, who gathered to enhance their understanding of pressing environmental concerns.

Professor Marek’s presentation illuminated the complex issues surrounding global climate change and emphasized the importance of conscientious actions by European fossil society.

His lecture served as a platform for open discussions and a call for collective responsibility in addressing the global environmental challenges we face today.

During an open forum, participants raised concerns about the rapid depletion of the nation’s forest reserves due to unregulated illegal chainsaw operations. They called on the Forestry Commission (FC) to take proactive measures to address this issue.

Dr. Emmanuel Minkah, the Scientific Secretary at the Forestry Research Institute of Ghana, noted that some forest reserves designated for academic research were being encroached upon and exploited for commercial purposes. He urged the FC to do more to protect such reserves and ensure that timber contractors and merchants plant and nurture trees to sustain the forests.

In response, Mr. Augustine Gyedu, the Bono Regional Manager of the FC, emphasized that the responsibility of protecting the nation’s forest reserves from destruction could not be shouldered by the Commission alone. He called on all individuals and institutions to support the cause of promoting forest sustainability, recognizing the challenges posed by urban development and infrastructure expansion.
