The conference is expected to bring together over 300 exceptional young people who are changing the faceof the environment in South Africa and those that are aspiring to get into the Environmental industry.
These youth and industry experts will come across South Africa to discuss the most pressing Environmental issuesand the opportunities for youth within government, private sector and cities in South Africa.
Annually this this high impact one day Indaba will examine the role of government, private sector ,and young people in the skilling and developing of the youth to increase economic growth through the green economy. Stakeholders attending the annual Indaba, whether from government; social organisations; private business or representative agencies, often find opportunities to partner and participate in the development of our societies and support of green inititatives and ideas. Invited political heads will deliver keynote addresses while green experts in the industry present progress of the green economy, government efforts, plans and opportunities available for youth.
The education and skilling of our youth will play a major role in the success of our economic growth and development path. It is therefore of great importance that we intensify the efforts of capacitating our youth, who represent our future, to obtain the necessary skills in order to be meaningful players in the future of this industry. Government will need to work together with business, labour and the broader civil society in order to achieve these targets.
