Tavatose Sisonke Schools Visual Art Exhibition 2015

As the Environmental Management Agency (EMA), we strongly believe in stakeholder participation to achieve a safe, clean and healthy environment.  Our mission; ‘to regulate, monitor and promote the sustainable management of natural resources and protection of the environment with stakeholder participation’, shows how much we value the work done by various stakeholders to tackle some of the topical environmental issues in the nation. Schools are among the list of stakeholders that we work with. In so doing, we inculcate responsibility and environmental stewardship among school children, who happen to be the future leaders. We operate under the banner “Catch them young” because we believe that, ‘you cannot train an old dog new tricks’, hence children should be educated on environmental issues at a tender age, so that when they eventually become adults, they will be able to use their resources sustainably.
