Programme Name:
Environment Programme (Youth In and Out of School)

Programme Objectives:
In response to the global call for communities of the world to minimize the already visible effect of carbon prints, ZTDC initiated an environmental education programme. This response is premised by goal seven of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and seeks to ensure environmental sustainability. The effects of this challenge are visible already and failure to respond accordingly will prove fatal. In line with South African government's report on millennium development goals 'report on this subject, the anticipated success is dependent on bringing to life the country's policy on sustainable development through individual and communities' contribution; through striking a balance between their needs and safeguarding the country' natural resources.

To enhance and put more context to the programme, ZTDC is in a working relationship with Tswaing Meteorite crater, a 2000-hectare heritage site. The main feature of Tswaing are a 220 000 years old meteorite impact crater (100 m deep and 1,3 km across) , a wetland (marsh) area, a variety of ecosystems and the remains of a factory that produced soda ash and salt. This strategic relationship provides beneficiaries with a life experience of ideal and original ecosystem experience.
