Georgina, who is studying at the Southeast University in China, impressed the jury with her passion for her research work.
They were of the view that her work could help raise awareness for a sustainable form of architecture.
It is also hoped that it would help deal with challenges that come with the implementation of green buildings.

It is under the patronage of the minister, Anja Karliczek and seeks to reward young international researchers yearly for helping to create sustainable societies.

In other news, the Ghana Revenue Authority has at the end of September 2019, received GH¢ 32 billion of its target for the year from taxpayers.
The Acting Commissioner General of the Authority, Amishaddai Owusu Amoah, has expressed optimism that the Authority would meet the target by the end of the year.
Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, the Owusu Amoah said the Authority had put in place measures to collect taxes for the country.
On debt collection, Owusu Amoah said most companies owed GRA taxes and as part of a campaign to retrieve the money, they have written to the organisations to settle their debts or face the full rigours of the law.
In line with that, the Authority in September 2019 launched a task force dubbed: “Operation Collect, Name and Shame” aimed to collect taxes that were overdue and publish the names of businesses that are proving recalcitrant to settle their tax debt.
