30 November 2020
Thirteen youth-led projects are set to benefit from the Driving Force for Change initiative, intended for projects that tackle issues of climate change, waste management and biodiversity loss.
“This initiative, worth R1.3 million, announced on Youth Day this year, responded to the President’s challenge to South Africa’s youth to craft and design programmes that will make the country reach its developmental goals and address the unemployment crisis,” Minister of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries, Barbara Creecy said.
On Thursday, the Minister announced 13 successful projects for the Driving Force for Change initiative at the South African National Biodiversity Institute in Pretoria.
