Bad human attitude towards the environment in many cases results in environmental degradation. This can be as a result of lack of knowledge and awareness on the significance of environmental conservation.
The department embarks on Environmental Education and Awareness campaigns with the aim of educating and raising awareness amongst Johannesburg citizens. This is achieved through various forms of engagements and partnerships that includes:
- Commemoration of special environment days,
- Exhibitions in schools and communities,
- Community roadshows,
- Workshops and
The underlying purpose of all these campaigns is to create a better understanding and knowledge base of the balance between human activity and the limited natural resources of the City and globally.
