The politics of environmental destruction and the use of nature as teacher and site of learning

, : The politics of environmental destruction and the use of nature as teacher and site of learning. Convergence Toronto 28(4): 99-105

The paper begins by focusing on the causes of environmental degradation in South Africa and the impact they have on the lives of rural black communities. It examines obstacles which have prevented the widespread adoption of improved environmental health practises and discusses new initiatives which have been introduced by local government to encourage local communities to improve their own environment principally through refuse collection.
