Or are you a media professional passionate about environmental justice who wants to do more to inform and give the public a voice on these issues?
Do you think the public has a role to play in promoting environment and climate friendly policies and laws that benefit all, and holding government accountable?

Then we would love to have you at this workshop!

APPLY HERE

Deadline for applications: 6 July 2018


This is one of four provincial workshops organised under the Action 24 project. The aim is to empower local activists, organisations and local media houses with knowledge and skills on why and how to engage the Provincial Legislatures and Parliament on environmental issues.

The workshop will cover 3 topics: public participation in the legislative sector; budget advocacy and monitoring through the Legislature; tackling key environmental/climate-related issues.

Ultimately, it is expected that participants will in turn apply and encourage such participation within their constituencies. The workshop will also serve as a basis for further collaboration with and support to organisations willing to engage with the Legislature on environmental issues.


This workshop is organised by Youth@SAIIA, as part of the Action 24 initiative. For questions, please write to youth@saiia.org.za with ‘Action 24 Workshop Western Cape’ as your subject line, or call 011 339 2021.
