Activists from different communities across the country and neighbouring Zimbabwean are gathering for three weeks started from the 12th February, and the purpose of meeting is the annual Environmental Justice School hosted by GroundWork.
Activists started by mapping their environmental regional problems associated with. As the week unfolded activists also learned more about history, politics, economics and development, including social issues. The lesson of the week is the 3Es: Exclusion- from decision making processes that may come back to haunt affected communities, Enclosure from the processes whilst unfold and Externalities are always a burden carried out by the affected communities as a result.
