Fracking in South Africa: a civil society perspective

February 19, 2014 @ 5:30 pm

Fracking Rally Nieu Bethesda -1bFracking has been perhaps the hottest environmental topic in South Africa in the last year – and for good reason.

While industry would have us see hydraulic fracturing as the cure to South Africa’s energy shortages, communities, environmentalists, and a range of experts have raised serious concerns.

So next month (actually just before Shell hosts a similar talk) Greenpeace Africa will be convening a discussion on the issue, and you’re invited to join in.

The Panel

  • David Fig, Environmentalist and Sociologist
  • Carin Bosman, Environmental Management Adviser, and Director of Carin Bosman Sustainable Solutions
  • Shan Holmes, Director of RealSearch, Microbiologist and lawyer
