The Walter Sisulu Environmental Centre in Mamelodi was established in September 2004 by the Jewish National Fund as an environmental discovery centre that aims to raise awareness and mobilise community-based environmental champions. The Centre was established with the aim to be the leading environmental education and resource centre that demonstrates models of best practice within the community, and creates campaigners for a sustainable future. This is achieved by bringing learners to the Centre to complete various experiential learning experiences which are aligned to the National Department of Basic Education’s CAPS programme & curriculum.
To be a leading environmental education and resource centre that demonstrates models of best practice within the community and creates champions for a sustainable future.
WSEC hosts four main themed rooms covering the environmental awareness areas of water, biodiversity, waste and energy. The biodiversity room is linked to the outdoor living classroom which serves as a model of best practice for schools’ food security. The educational content of the rooms has been developed to correlate to and support the Curriculum of the Department of Education thereby enabling educators to utilise the centre to enhance learning in the classroom.
WSEC has a greening program and donates trees and plants to community centres, schools, crèche’s, clinics and parks / open spaces in Mamelodi to enhance the Mamelodi Greening Program.
