River Rehab for World Water Week – Johannesburg event. Jukskei Park, 8:30am, 22 March

I will be joining Greenpeace Africa and Greenbeings at Jukskei Park this Saturday 22 March for a river clean up and bit of a photo session. I certainly am looking forward to it, come join us – details below. JB

Water and light raysSaturday the 22nd of March will see people young and old partake in a River Rehab in Jukskei Park, in honour of World Water Week. Greenpeace in collaboration with the event organisers, Greenbeings, will host community members, school pupils, supporters and members of both organisations to clean up a river in the community. The river runs some 50km from the centre of Johannesburg running through Bertrams, Elliis Park to join the Crocodile River.

 While South Africa receives an annual rainfall of 492 millimetres in comparison to global rainfall of 984 millimetres, it is clear that SA is a water scarce country. Questions of pollution and water waste still take president, paying special attention to issues such as fossil fuel power stations that require the use of fresh water, while parts of the country do not have access to clean water.
