You’re invited to join Gary Pienaar in Turning the Tide on Plastic

So, you have been hearing a lot about plastic pollution and want to do something about it. Completing the Tide Turners Plastic Challenge is a great way to start!

Once again Chief Commissioner Gary Pienaar invites you to join him in turning the tide on plastic! This time around he will be in East London.

  • Date: 15 May 2021
  • Time: 09:00 to 13:00
  • Venue: 1st Cambridge Scout Hall, East London

After a brief update on the challenges facing SSA and Scouting in the country, Gary will be touching base on:

  1. Understanding how plastic is threatening life in oceans and on land;
  2. Understanding how the global community is tackling the issue;
  3. Understanding and acting on reducing your personal use of single-use plastics;
  4. Inspiring your friends, family, school, and community to reduce, reuse and recycle single-use plastics

The Tide Turners Plastic Challenge is one of many ways that young people can contribute to creating a better world. If you want to find out more before joining Gary for the Tide Turners Plastic Challenge discussion, you can go to the SCOUTS SA Wiki:

The Challenge is run by SCOUTS South Africa in partnership with the United Nations Environment programme and WOSM – #Scouts4SDG’s.
