The Jewish National Fund, Walter Sisulu Environmental Centre in Mamelodi, founded in Sept 2004 is an environmental discovery centre that aims to raise awareness and mobilise community based environmental champions.

We have hosted over 46000 learners at our centre in the key learning areas of Water, Waste, Energy, and Biodiversity with curriculum based educational activities that support teachers and educate & enable learners with outcomes based activities that are stimulating, fun and informative.

Our aim is to develop awareness amongst the youth to inspire and motivate them to preserve and utilise the wealth of our natural heritage. The centre demonstrates in practical and visible way actions that could be taken by South Africans that promote both development objectives and climate change mitigation.

WSEC also supports professional development of educators and grounds staff from Southern Tshwane schools and runs the Mamelodi Greening Programme that has planted over 10 000 trees in schools, homes and other public places in the last three years and is pioneering the Mamelodi Zero waste programme to clean up the area through proactive waste management and recycling.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
