Greening the WSSD is the first attempt to reduce the environmental impacts of a major UN Summit on the host city .  In this case, the people of Johannesburg. By working with them, we aim to protect, conserve and improve the city's environment and natural resources........ leaving a legacy for the future.

Greening your hosts. Greening the nation.

5000 volunteers are hosting you in Joburg. Mainly students, they are helping run the WSSD. Charged with such an important role, rest assured, they've been sensitised to the principles of sustainable development.

  • Our volunteers will:
    Give you tips on reducing your impact on our natural resources and
    Show you where and how to recycle waste

    Show you where to take tours to our community-based sustainable
    development projects

After the Summit, these same 5000 volunteers will take their knowledge back to their communities where they will help to clean and 'green' their neighbourhoods. When it comes to protecting South Africa's environment, they're doing their bit.
