The CHDM together with sector departments and Emalahleni local municipality celebrated the 2019 World Environment day themed: Air pollution. The event took place at Mount Arthur High School which is one of the schools where Rural sustainable villages project is being implemented.
The event was twinned with the launching of the project, with demonstration of the amazing biogas project that has been fully installed at the school.
The proceedings of the day began with a clean-up campaign on the school yard, where learners, government officials as well as community members took part. Presentations from DEDEAT, WESSA and CHDM followed and then tree planting and lastly a demonstration of the biogas system.
Lelethu and Nolufefe are YRE learners from Mount Arthur High school who had their first real action in capturing the world environment day celebration hosted at their school.
They were nervous at first as it was their first time handling such equipment. “this is a great opportunity for me and from now on I will work hard to capture issues from the surrounding community”…Nolufefe.
