Sharon Rose Aggrey is a Certified Sustainability Leader. The training that bestowed that title also bestowed the mission to create an SDG-focused project. She went beyond to create a nonprofit (Global Foundation for Community Development) that is moving SDG training to all of the universities in Ghana and also to communities with a systematic approach to determining needs and then meeting them.  In 2022, she starts off with a series of “in-person” and “online” educational opportunities for youth who wish to know more about the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  (Registration information below on this page.)

Sharon talked with Frontrunners Innovate Producer and Host, Mary Kurek, and Co-Host, Ambassador Ghazala Khan about her work, mission, and events coming up in 2022.
