2016 was heralded as a great success for Sustainability Week, with record attendance at the seminal African Capital Cities Sustainability Forum, and significant breadth and depth of content through more than 10 conferences, seminars, workshops, and debates. Youth & the Green Economy effectively engaged youth groups from various regions within the City of Tshwane, and the Green Home Fair, held at a busy Northern Suburbs shopping centre, made an impact..
Connecting people across sectors and stakeholder groups is a key objective of Sustainability Week, and 2016 saw the inclusion of two cross sector debates staged for the first time, effectively bringing together people from sectors as diverse as mining and agriculture into the same conversation, with leading TV personality Peter Ndoro facilitating the Climate Change debate on Day 2, and WWF running the Environmentalism Debate on Day 3.
Sustainability Week is an inclusionary event, and in 2016 included co-located events by WWF, PAGE, UNIDO, City of Tshwane, and SACN.
We wish to thank all partners and attendees whose input and presence made Sustainability Week such a special event.
The 2016 Post Event Report will be published shortly, and the dates for 2017 have been set as 13-15 June at the CSIR ICC, we hope to see you all there.
