‘Heal the world, plant a tree’; this was very important message delivered by NaDEET on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture Water and Forestry during National Tree Planting Day (9 October 2015), which was celebrated in RUG communities in late October. 90 trees were planted in 6 schools to celebrate under the theme Our Environment. Our Future. Our Responsibility.
‘NaDEET has been very educational. It has brought me closer to the environment, rather changed the way I think about the environment. It taught me the impacts my actions have on the environment. I can be responsible and take action to save the world’. Loutjie, Gochas Youth.
After a week of hands learning, most RUG youth could reflect on the impacts their actions have on the environment and pledged what they would do differently to improve their lives and local environment.
Media plays an important role in the environment. It allows us to keep ourselves informed about current environmental events. As part of the EU funded action this booklet gives you tips on how to report on the environment and how to use media to share and keep yourself updated. Our RUG participating communities will use this as a guide to share and evaluate their work, how are you going to use it? Download the Bush Telegraph to learn more.
