In a month jammed full of different environmental days WESSA Lowveld decided to focus on a few that are truly intertangled with one another namely 14/3 International Day of Action for Rivers, 20/3 World Frog Day, 22/3 World Water Day and 23-29/3 National Water Week.

Water is one of our most important resources and is integral to the success of life on earth, in short, without it there would be none. Despite this very commonly known fact it is still constantly under threat almost entirely due to human influence. From water scarcity, climate change and pollution (both chemical and physical) to name a few, we are doing a very good job at hurting the future for ourselves as well as every other creature and ecosystem in existence.

Please explore related issues as well as solutions in the Lowveld March newsletter.

See April’s Environment Days in the newsletter and do your part to create awareness for everything that makes our unique, little blue rock in space so special!

Reflections on 2022 as we head into 2023

Reflections on 2022 as we head into 2023

2022 was an incredibly busy and productive year for WESSA KZN and it looks as if 2023 is gearing up to be equally eventful. This latest Green Spiral covers the last five months of 2022. Click here for the Green Spiral copy.

WESSA KZN Youth (Durban and Midlands groups) took the lead in arranging many of the events and activities, which ranged from waste minimisation and tree planting to green enterprise and enviro education. Some of the events took place on special enviro and social awareness days: World Wetlands Day; Human Rights Day; International Mother Earth Day; World Oceans Day; Youth Day; Women’s Day; Arbor Day (and month); and International Coastal Clean-up. Food gardening also features prominently in this issue, and we hope it will soon become a main focus area.

2022 has been a year of networking and collaboration towards strengthening civil society and the environmental movement in its efforts to address the perfect storm of issues confronting our communities – environmental, social and economic – and we will continue to build on this.In June, WESSA National held Strategic Review Roadshows in all five regions and thereafter launched its 5-year Strategic Plan, with its stated mission being to educate, advocate and act for the environment and social justice through: sustainability education; partnerships and conservation programmes that drive climate action; restore biodiversity; and reduce pollution
