Changing Practice

Providing a platform for a network of civil society activists and implementers who have participated in the Changing Practice course, who are fighting for environmental and social justice.

Following a successful two year Changing Practice course with participants from the South African Water Caucus, 2017-2018  EMG’s water and climate change programme, in partnership with Rhodes University’s ELRC and AWARD, ran a Changing Practice course with water activists from throughout the Olifants catchment, in Mpumalanga and Limpopo. What really made this course exciting was that it brought together activists from throughout a single catchment – the Olifants catchment – and although all of the organisations represented focus on a diverse range of issues, they are deeply connected through the shared river they are all striving to protect. Jane Burt, the course facilitator, described the group as ‘deeply passionate, committed and doing incredible work already’. They all participated in the CSO Indabas hosted by AWARD. The organisations represented by participants on the course are Action Voices, Come-Act, CULISA, Itumeleng Youth Project, Khulumani Support Group, Mpumalanga Water Caucus and Sekhukhune Environmental Justice Network. To read more about these organisations’ work and to see the booklets they produced, please see the EMG blog

We will track the ongoing work of these amazing activists through our Changing Practice blog written by December Ndlovu monthly.
