Building a Greener and Liveable City

​eThekwini Municipality's Senior Management gathered this morning at the Moses Mabhida Stadium to discuss the circular economy and innovative methods of creating a more greener and liveable Durban.

The circular economy refers to an industrial economy that promotes greater resource productivity aiming to reduce waste and avoid pollution by design or intention.

The Keynote Speaker for the Seminar was Lise Pretorius , Head of the Strategy Division at GCX Africa.

“Waste should be seen as an opportunity and a resource .We need to look into history to find how we can adopt the innovation wave at a critical mass. Organisations also need to get rid of silo thinking as the circular economy is cross cutting and complex,” said Pretorius.

Departments within eThekwini were also given an opportunity to share "What is Green in Durban," showcasing the Green Projects the City has undertaken.

The city has numerous projects that already promote sustainability in daily operations. From waste beneficiation through the Use-It project to recycling, and generating power through the sludge digestion process and hydro-power through the bulk water lines, the city is innovative in its approach to creating a greener city.

As the 31st MILE Management Seminar, today's session provided a space for officials to share valuable insights and good practice on creating a greener city for all.
