Media Alert: Premier Zille to Host 110% Green Campaign Anniversary Event
3 June 2013
Tomorrow, Tuesday 4 June, Premier Helen Zille will host the one-year anniversary event of the launch of the Western Cape Government’s 110% GREEN campaign at the Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading (VPUU) project site in Khayelitsha.
The campaign is an initiative to advance the growth of the green economy in the province through raising awareness, facilitating networks and giving official recognition to “green pioneers” who are shifting to becoming low-carbon, resource-efficient and creating new economic opportunities. The campaign was first announced by Premier Zille in her 2012 State of the Province Address and was launched on World Environment Day with identified flagship organisations.
Report-backs will be given on the impact achieved by the founding flagship projects in the past year and Premier Zille will welcome a further 20 flagship projects to the campaign, who will receive a signed 110% GREEN flag.
