The more we do together, the closer we will get to achieving our objective of making the Western Cape the Green Economic Hub of Africa.
We're Taking up the Challenge
There is increasing evidence that our planet's resources cannot sustain us in the ways we are used to. The World Wildlife Fund's Living Planet Report 2012 predicts that we will need two planets by 2030 if we continue with "business as usual". That's not an option. We have to change the way we grow our economies and the way we use our natural resources to support this growth.
The Western Cape Government has decided to take up this challenge and turn adversity into opportunity, and we are re-envisioning our social, economic and environmental future.
We Cannot Wait
We must get going with practical action, have impact and learn from it - and create a citizenry that takes shared responsibility. 110% Green has been launched to support just that.
On 5 June 2012, Premier Helen Zille raised the flag, together with some 30 organisations that committed to flagship projects designed to build the green economy.
Commit, Act and Impact!
We want you to join 110% Green - bring 100% commitment and have 10% impact for the green economy. This will only be successful if we work together. Decide what you want to do - big or small, at home, in business, within communities - and then COMMIT, ACT and IMPACT.
