Chibeze Ezekiel’s four-year grassroots campaign led to the Ghanaian Environmental Minister canceling the construction of a coal-fired power plant and adjoining shipping port to import the coal. The project would have been Ghana’s first coal power plant. Ezekiel’s activism stopped the coal industry from entering Ghana and steered the nation’s energy future away from coal and towards renewables. In 2020 Chibeze received the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize, know as the Green Nobel Prize, for his work.
