This portfolio aims to bring environmental sustainability concepts, ideas and projects to the wider community, outside of UCT. UCT students are often passionate volunteers and this portfolio aims to provide the platform for eco-warriors to do their bit in the wider Cape Town area.

In the past Outreach has facilitated tree-planting sessions, with the help of our partner Greenpop, in various schools. We have planted trees in school courtyards that will being much needed shade and greenery. Tree planting is a fun activity to do with both school kids and volunteers. We hope to host more this year, so look out for them on our events page!

This year we also hope to collaborate with SHAWCO and facilitate enviro workshops, litter pick-ups and recycling competitions at schools. Watch this space for more!
