Any woman between the age of 18 and 26 who is passionate about Mother Nature and who wants to make a difference in her community, can enter The Miss Earth South Africa 2015 leadership programme.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 8 April.

Castings roll-out in the Western Cape is on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 April.

The castings are conducted as interviews and workshop sessions where each applicant is exposed to issues and challenges that the environmental sector is faced with, and how it impacts on day-to-day life.

A project day is scheduled for each region so that the participants are able to engage with the community and make a direct impact. Participants are exposed to topics pertaining to climate change, energy efficiency, water as a resource, recycling and the broader scope of environmental education.
