The Department of Environmental Affairs will be hosting an Environmental Career Expo targeting approximately 4000 school learners and unemployed youth in and around Kokstad Local Municipality on Friday 31 August 2018.

The objective of the Career Expo is to empower learners, particularly those currently in grade 12, with information that will stimulate the development of an appetite to pursue a career in the environment sector. The Expo will also provide the unemployed youth with information that will expose them to the various programmes and opportunities as will be exhibited by various Expo exhibitors.

The Expo is intended to create an awareness about environmental career opportunities, educate the learners and unemployed youth about conserving the environment and pursue a career in the environment sector.
