Sustaining the Wild Coast

I have just helped out setting up the social media links for Sustaining the Wild Coast (SWC). SWC is a civil society organization (Section 21 Company not for gain) whose aim is to promote sustainable solutions for the Wild Coast of South Africa through ‘grassroots’ involvement of rural Wild Coast communities in research, education and sustainable livelihoods programmes.

In addition, SWC advocates against culturally and ecologically inappropriate developments such as the proposed mining at Xolobeni and the recent decision on the N2 toll road extension, which they are presently opposing. See various articles here: 1, 2 and 3.

SWC are looking to spread the word about what they are doing and raise some funds for expected court battles. I think they have done a very admirable job with Xolobeni. Please like them on Facebook HERE and follow them on Twitter HERE, and encourage others to do the same…

    Hello there…
    great to hear
    I’m currently working with TRALSO an NGO based in MTHATHA and we do advocacy work and mobilisation on climate change and anti-mining campaigns with Xholobeni, mostly the Nyavini community(the most coastal and where the mining would take place). I would love to work with you too.
    The community there is really keen on agro-ecology projects. Lets see how we can work together
