South Africa : Envirochild - Setting Standards in African Sustainable Development

Envirochild is a diverse group of residents of Hout Bay, dedicated to transforming our valley into a healthy, prosperous and united community.

We believe that the principles of:

* permaculture,
* people empowerment and
* political neutrality

will enable us to make Hout Bay a sustainable place for our children to live.

We are also convinced that this is our best chance of meeting the impact of

* development
* growing population
* climate change
* resource depletion
* pollution
* energy constraints
* poverty and
* rising food and fuel costs.
