Learners of six schools across the city competed in the Green Amazing Race hosted by a Cape Town-based environmental group last Saturday.

The challenge held by Project 90 by 2030 at Green Point Urban Park was aimed at creating a platform for the youth to take action and to inspire others in their schools and communities.

Under the supervision of the project’s mentors and staff, the learners raced to solve a series of clues and puzzles, to find locations within the park and complete tasks that tested their knowledge, understanding of climate change and team leadership skills.

Participants were given a chance to share facts and images of what they had learnt and constructed on their personal social media pages.

“It was good to see learners from the different schools chatting together, taking selfies and having fun. One of our strengths is the ability to bring young people from diverse backgrounds together for days like this,” says event organiser Athenkosi Baba.
