Could You be SA’s Next Earth Warrior

Posted March 2, 2017 by myjoburg in My Joburg
new Miss Earth

With an ever-growing awareness and global focus on climate change, the work done by Miss Earth South Africa Ambassadors across the country has become more important than ever. After the Paris Agreement reached at COP 21 late last year, the work to change mind-sets of civil society is now more important than ever. Do you have what it takes to be an environmental ambassador, with an energy and spark to share knowledge, passion and ultimately to change behaviour for a more sustainable future, for all?
The 2017 Miss Earth South Africa celebrates its 14th year of empowering South African women, who go on to become advocates for waste management, recycling, climate change, food security, water stewardship and energy efficiency. The organisation has been acknowledged and recognised from within the environmental space, both nationally and internationally for more than a decade, thus creating even more awareness and scope of the growing need for more conscious minded individuals and communities. This year will see them championing #WasteStopsWithMe a campaign that measures each person’s impact.
This leadership programme seeks to develop young minds, inspiring young women who in turn, touch lives and ignite greener cities. Award winning duo, Ella Bella and Catherine Constantinides are the Executive Directors of the Miss Earth South Africa leadership programme and they continue to grow their footprint across the continent working on Miss Earth Zambia, Miss Earth Namibia and Miss Earth Mozambique. Their vision is to create a continental network of young climate leaders who are passionately changing the face of Africa. They often say; “It starts with us and as women we are the movers and shakers of communities, so it’s up to us to shake things up and get people thinking about ways in which we can have less of an impact of the world around us. When we look after Mother Earth she is then able to sustain and look after us.”
2017 Entries close on the 24th March and potential applicants can enter online on the official website; National workshops and castings will take place weekly across the country at Tsogo Sun venue’s, during the month of April. Applicants will be notified accordingly once applications have been received. Workshops will include a green minded approach to sharing the journey of being a Miss Earth Ambassador, a key focus on waste management, separation at source, recycling, climate change and food security. A project day is scheduled for each region, so that the participants are able to engage with the community and make a direct impact. Each young woman goes away having grown, having learnt and seeing that they can be the difference.
The search is on for SA’s new Green Glam Queen. Apply now and allow the programme to develop and equip you accordingly. Join the initiative and help communities to change behaviour and mind-sets for the betterment of the environment and for a more sustainable future.
The programme is endorsed by the Department of Environmental Affairs and the Department of Tourism. The initiatives are run alongside municipalities and corporates that are seeking to impact the communities around them, whilst inputting and growing these young women; that carry the green message forward. This year the organisation is proud to partner with Pikitup on school and community activations, educational programmes and projects that support the strategic goals of Pikitup, through the Miss Earth programme.
