The Gold Coast Sustainability and Governance Institute (GCSGI), or Gold Coast for short, is both an idea and a dream. Gold Coast draws from the past to inform and build a more sustainable and democratic Africa. We believe that sustainable development and democratic governance are not mutually exclusive. We strive towards a dream where Africa’s development cannot be discussed and planned for without paying attention to building active legal and institutional foundations. Inspired by Dr. Nkrumah’s “self-government now,” we believe that a sustainable and democratic Africa should be the agenda now.
Pursuing this agenda requires building a coalition of thoughtful, energetic, and vision-driven scholars and practitioners to engage in critical and transformative research, community engagement, and policy advocacy. Gold Coast is emblematic of this coalition for a sustainable and democratic Africa now.
