In light of the current weather conditions, characterized by increased dryness and dusty air across the country, and the resultant health alert, Strategic Communication Africa Limited (Stratcomm Africa), the organizers of the Ghana Garden and Flower Show (GGFS), announces with regret the cancellation of the much anticipated special February edition of the GGFS, that was scheduled to take place from 14th to 18th February 2024 at the GHUD Park, Accra Mall.
This decision comes following confirmation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Meteorological Services of the severe weather, which has not only seriously affected human health, leading to increased respiratory conditions, but also poses a considerable threat to the health of plants that were to be exhibited.
Sharon Anim, Stratcomm Africa Marketing Communication Manager says, “The message about the pressing need for all of us to join hands in taking action against climate change could not have been more dramatically brought home to us. The reason why we organise the show has now become the very reason why we are unable to organise it at this time. We all need to come together to spread the love for Mother Earth and save our own lives.”
There is urgency about the need for climate action and Stratcomm Africa remains committed to our mission of promoting the environmental benefits of floriculture and horticulture. We continue to use every opportunity we have to deliver the Climate Action message and promote responsible stewardship of our environment.
We thank all our partners, exhibitors, and the public for their understanding and continued support. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the next Ghana Garden and Flower Show under safer and more favourable weather conditions. Together we build a Greener, Cleaner, Healthier, Wealthier and More Beautiful Ghana.
