Aims and Objectives
The Green Connection believes that empowering people to participate in their environment is the only way that truly sustainable development can take place. Our environmental resources are limited and not ours to squander but to protect for future generations.
We believe that economic growth and development, improvement of socio-economic status and conservation of natural resources can only take place within a commonly understood framework of sustainable development. Our organisation aims to provide practical support to both the government and non-government sector as an integral part of sustainable development.
Some of the specific areas we work in are Sustainable Development, Climate Change & Renewable Energy, Educational Resources & Translation, Community Development, Empowerment in Environmental Sustainability, and Environmental Impact Assessments.
