The Green Connection Welcomes You!

The Green Connection
The Green Connection
The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the 4th industrial revolution and South Africans have had to adapt to the ‘new normal’ quite quickly. This struggle is even more real for those at grassroots who fight for environmental and social justice.
Welcome to our first newsletter!
This edition is jam-packed, since the first half of 2021 has already kept us quite busy. The sad thing is the bulk of our work has been focused on opposing flawed EIAs and related processes, with government and companies ignoring their legal obligations. The lack of meaningful public participation and often deliberate attempts to exclude those who will be affected, is a recurring theme in this country. 
That is why the Green Connection is on a mission to empower South Africans especially our small-scale fishing communities who call our coastline home to participate in decision-making on proposed projects that affect them. This is the only way that social and environmental justice will be achieved. 
Through our community outreach and advocacy work, the Green Connection supports coastal communities who oppose offshore oil and gas activities, as well as other threats to their livelihoods, such as Karpowerships.
Let’s continue to empower the youth and work towards protecting our environment and those that defend it, remembering to restore the ecosystem as people’s livelihoods depend on it. Let us push for climate justice, while raising the voices of fisher’s, to ensure good governance. The time has come to phase out oil and gas.
