- About the organisation including mission/vision.
The Strategic Youth Network for Development (SYND) was established in September 2008 with the aim of contributing to youth development interventions in Ghana. Our vision is to achieve environmental sustainability through active youth inclusion in the governance of climate-related thematic areas. SYND aims to be a bridge between the Ghanaian government and youth on climate and other environmental-related issues.

- Governance of the natural resources and
- Formulation, implementation, and review of existing environmental sector policies, programs, and projects from local to national level
