Links Between a Poverty Fighting Present & a Sustainable Future
The Green Changemakers
OCTOBER 20, 2008
EcoCity takes the form of several innovative projects which all interlink with the long-term goal of creating a self-sufficient and ecologically friendly community. In the short-term, all projects run on the principles of poverty alleviation and job creation. Iteke has created 40 full-time, green jobs and heightened awareness of the need to recycle. No more than 100 jobs have been created, but the philosophical changes are significant.
