Restoring the Ecosystem at Emalahleni Municipality

(from Thulani Gatsha



The innovation enterprise idea will contribute to reverse the impact of climate change that will trigger in 50 years time from now. As we all know that Emalahleni Municipality has a Climate Change crisis that is caused by fossil fuels and other mining activities within that municipality and nearest cities. We aim to coordinate and facilitate various Environmental Management programs that aim to reverse the impact of Climate change and establish various environmental management entrepreneurship opportunities to local communities to take care of the environment and better up their lives in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of United Nations and achieve Climate goal 13 of the SDGs. We aim to plant trees and have long term projects and programs to restore the ecosystem, working with various stakeholders and local citizens. We aim to apply all 17 SDG goals of the United Nation and make sure our communities understand this goal and implement them before 2030.


We expect to contribute to the change of the world, working together reducing the impact or the risk that are associated with identified problem. Aim to facilitate and advise working with other stakeholders to achieve this goal. We aim to promote education and awareness in the issues that are linked with Climate Change and Ecosystem restoration programs. Aiming to activate entrepreneurship opportunities within that community and building a safe environment for all citizens in the world. Aiming to work together ad a collective with other organisations.
