A waste management project adopted by Miss Earth 2015, Ms Silvia Naa Commodore, will be launched on Saturday, April 9 at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra.
Ms Commodore, who is also an environmental ambassador, will be joined by other Miss Earth queens from Fiji, India, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago.
While in Ghana, they will have the opportunity to acquaint themselves with the work of Miss Earth Ghana on environmental issues.
Ms Commodore will unveil her modest contribution for effective management of waste in the nation’s capital, which is growing fast due to influx by migrants from rural parts of the country.
The queens will also visit the Presidency, Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Ministry of Environment, Science and Technology and the Lands and Natural Resources for meetings and familiarization tours.
In addition, they will visit various embassies, schools, tourist sites and make donations to flood victims in parts of the city which bore the brunt of the June 2015 floods that killed dozens and rendered many more homeless.
First Royale Events is the franchise holder for Miss Earth Ghana and has been organising the event since 2002.
The launch is being supported by Eco Earth Fund; Forestry Commission; Ministry of Environment, Science and Technology; Accra Metropplitan Assembly; Melcom; Nissan; Ghandour Cosmetics and KLM.
