"I wanna show somebody that I care
Cause feeling good is a choice that we all make"
Mercedes Mathebula, City of Tshwane Sustainability Specialist, and my guest on the iStart2 show this week, exudes positive energy, a passion for sustainability, determination and bubbles with excitement about the plans they have for leading the City of Tshwane into a green economy and delivering on the mission:
"To sustainably enhance the quality of life of all people in Tshwane through a developmental system of local government and by rendering efficient, effective and affordable services".
We chatted to Mercedes, about the newly formed Sustainability Unit at the municipality, the challenges we face in Tshwane with regards to water, waste, energy and health & safety. We touched on plans they have for assisting the vulnerable members of our society and the four phase plan that has now reached the implementation stage where citizens, entrepreneurs and private businesses will be called upon to share ideas for greening the city in future.
