Tswelopele Clean-up Campaign

Tswelopele Clean-up Campaign

 

TSWELOPELE LONG TERM SUSTAINABILITY PLAN

 

Project Description:

The Tswelopele Clean-up campaigns are a Mayoral initiative focused on encouraging volunteerism and promoting environmental care. The goal of the campaign is to inspire communities and businesses in taking charge of their natural environment. Attached to this is the drive to encourage participants to focus on separating waste so that more work is done towards recycling and overall environmental awareness.

The City of Tshwane aims to act as a point of contact with communities who want to drive initiatives aimed at cleaning up their local areas. In doing so the City will strive to support these initiatives with existing resources as far as possible.

On the first Saturday of each month the City will be conducting a Tswelopele clean-in a different geographic location spread across the seven regions. Where possible these clean-ups will also precede a public meeting so that communities can engage with the political leadership directly after the campaign.

At each of these individual launches the guiding framework should be as follows:

·         Active involvement from political leadership(EM and MMCs) on the ground

·         Time frames of 08:00 – 10:00 or 09:00 – 11:00 depending on availability of political leadership

·         Direct partnerships with local businesses( sourcing volunteers, sponsoring clean-up materials, providing water, etc)

·         Community partnerships with NGOs, churches, and volunteer groups

·         City of Tshwane regional support (staff, trucks to clear waste, cleaning equipment, etc)

·         Media partners – targeting local community media (radio/print) in the run-up to particular launches to assist in communicating on the event and drive support

·         Social media – Utilization of both City of Tshwane and Executive Mayor’s social media accounts to generate interest in events. Acknowledge role of sponsors and supporting partners

·         Communications – Standardised website landing page to channel queries about Tswelopele and allow participants to register events that the city can actively promote.
