South Africa

A biodiversity hotspot - with water as main challenge

South Africa is constantly challenged by a changing climate. Water, whether its polluted, unavailable or unsafe, is one of its main challenges. After Day-Zero, in 2017, Wavemakers started spreading awareness about water onto the next generation. Now, in 2023, the South African Wavemakers launched their Chapter – to keep making sustainable impact in the years to come!

After visiting the International Water Week 2019 in the Netherlands, I got to learn what Wavemakers does and realized our passions are the same. I received their tools to organize water labs and guest-lectures about water and science. Mostly to vulnerable children. Since I started, I reached 1086 schools. My dream is to make real impact and to change the next generation’s perspective on water.

Committed to water action

A consortium of South African organizations are joining the South African Wavemakers in their mission by submitting a commitment to the UN Water Action Agenda. Keep an eye on this page and the Water Action Agenda for updates on their commitment.
