Overview

The Sustainable Education and Skills Centres (SEAS Centres) for Employment Programme is a South East African Climate Consortium (SEACC) project that is driven by Sustainable Seas Trust (SST). Each university and NGO has a role to play in developing completely green, carbon neutral, welcoming buildings and in education. For example, the architecture will be led by Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU), energy & heat by NMMU & University of Fort Hare (UFH); water by Rhodes University (RU) & UFH agriparks by UFH, health and family by Walter Sisulu University (WSU), skills training by all universities and the private sector, education and computer training by all universities including students.

Sustainable Education and Skills Centres (SEAS Centres) for Employment will cater for impoverished coastal communities who have no choice, but to degrade the environment upon which they depend in order to subsist. The main purpose of SEAS Centres is to provide alternative employment opportunities which empower impoverished people so that they are able to choose sustainable livelihoods and to rehabilitate degraded environments. The SEAS Centres are being designed as totally green (we refer blue) carbon neutral facilities for rural coastal Africa. They deal with the primary challenges of Africa, namely:

  • Poverty alleviation
  • Provision of education and skills training
  • Provision of employment and empowering people so that they can find employment
  • Promoting food security
  • Promoting family health
  • Conservation and rehabilitation of environments
  • Enabling people to obtain human pride and dignity, particularly of women.
