Sustainability Week to take place in Pretoria in June


Sustainability company Alive2Green will be hosting this year’s Sustainability Week at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research from June 23 to 28, which is themed ‘Get ready to put ideas in motion’.

The programme for the event will consist of 14 seminars that aim at providing stakeholders with the opportunity to share ideas that will improve environmental and economic performance across industries.

With the African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum forming part of the event for the first time this year, it will focus on laying a foundation for African cooperation at city level and urban scale.

The Green Building Conference will address the latest perspectives, case studies and projects on new designstrategies, building materials and approaches that contribute to the rapidly changing green environment.

The Water Resource Seminar will then discuss issues pertaining to water scarcity, which is becoming more apparent as climate change intensifies. Experts around this issue will present on latest technologies and best practice that can address this issue during the seminar.

Moreover, the Vision Zero Waste Seminar will be a combination of government and related nongovernment organisation executives who will discuss strategies required to achieve better recycling levels in their countries.

The Sustainability Energy Seminar will address energy efficiency and renewable-energy topics, while the Green Business Seminar will speak on ways to harness the green business market to drive South Africa towards a green economy.

The Transport and Mobility Seminar will address transport networks and the economic benefits these have for a country, while looking at how this helps people’s mobility.

Other seminars during the event include Food Security, Sustainability in Mining, Green Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Sustainable Infrastructure, Response Tourism Dialogue, Youth and the Green Economy, and the Green Home Fair.
