Taking place from 2 to 6 June, National Environment Week is held each year in the week ‘straddling’ World Environment Day which occurs on 5 June this year.
National Environment Week has become an annual feature on the South African calendar, with a range of important activities scheduled countrywide. Activities are scheduled at a national and provincial level. Environmental stakeholders will also embark on related activities during Environment Week.
Loose translation of the above paragraph; “A great opportunity for political leaders and other ‘shut yer pie hole’ persons to tell us lowly citizens how much our leaders ‘care’ for the environment before they climb back into their gas guzzlers and roar off into the hazy sunset with sirens blazing.”
