Bringing The light of hope
Water is one of the scarcest natural resources on earth. Only 1% of all the water on earth is fit for human consumption and over 2 billion people worldwide do not have access to clean water and over 3,5 million people die, every year, from water-related disease.
It is often said that the next world war will not be fought over oil or land or policy, but it will be fought for access to fresh, drinking water. With the number of things threatening this already scarce resource growing every day the Miss Earth South Africa strives to educate its ambassadors and the general public on the importance of keeping our water sources clean. With a number of river and beach clean-up initiatives run every year, the Miss Earth South Africa hopes to encourage communities to respect their valuable water sources.
The world’s dependence on fossil fuels is unsustainable and before long we will have depleted these already scarce natural resources. In order to move beyond coal power we need to invest in sustainable and renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. We at the Miss Earth South Africa strive to educate the public on the importance of a sustainable energy mix. Although we understand that migration to renewable energy sources will not be overnight and nor will it come at no cost, it is critical that every man, woman and child understands the importance of striking a balance with our energy mix.
