a non-profit environmental justice organization that support people’s struggles for environmental justice. Programmes: Climate/Energy Justice, Coal, Waste Environmental Health, and an activist school

Presence in: South Africa
Focus: Environmental Justice

groundWork is a non-profit environmental justice organization working in South Africa. It was formed in 1999 to support people’s struggles for environmental justice starting with people living on the fencelines of the petrochemicals industries and waste facilities. It now has programmes on Climate and Energy Justice, Coal, Waste and Environmental Health and it runs an annual Environmental Justice School for activists. groundWork supports the capacity of community groups to understand, monitor and act on environmental threats which are often couched in technical language designed to exclude; to meet industrial corporations, politicians and officials on equal terms; and to access the media and make media. All groundWork campaigns are driven by putting groundWork’s values to work. These values are founded on the principles of environmental justice and solidarity with communities that suffer environmental injustices.
