TWO Eastwood schools, Eastwood
Primary and Eastwood High took part in an environmental walk last Wednesday, September 6, to raise awareness in the community and industrial business sector about how residents and businesses contribute towards climate change.

The two-kilometre walk began at 9am and culminated with a talk at the Eastwood Community Hall on global climate change.

Stakeholders were represented at the walk, including Umgeni Water, the Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries and a local environmental group.

Chairperson of the Ward 34 war room, Mzwandile Goge said the walk was organised by war room members and the Abashana Agricultural Co-operative.

“This is an annual programme aimed at making the community aware of challenges in our community. Ward 34 is an industrial area and there are factories that release carbon emissions every day,” Goge said.
