Everyone around the globe is becoming more conscious of the effect mankind is having on the environment, and so the work done by Miss Earth Ambassadors across the country has become more important than ever.

Miss Earth South Africa gives the women participating the chance to become advocates for waste management, recycling, climate change, food security, water stewardship and energy efficiency. The leadership programme aims to grow young minds and inspire women who go on to touch lives and help ignite greener cities.

Executive directors of the Miss Earth South Africa leadership programme, Ella Bella and Catherine Constantinides, are working hard to spread their green footprints across the continent, working on both Miss Earth Zambia and Miss Earth Namibia. Their vision is to create a continental network of young climate leaders who are passionately changing the face of Africa.

They are often quoted saying, “It starts with us and, as women, we are the movers and shakers of communities, so it’s up to us to shake things up and get people thinking about ways in which we can have less of an impact on the world around us.”

This year, the organisation has partnered with Pikitup on school and community activations, educational programmes and projects that support the strategic goals of Pikitup through the Miss Earth programme.

Women between the ages of 18 and 26 who are interested in applying for the Miss Earth South Africa leadership programme should visit the website and send through the necessary paperwork in order to be considered. A number of workshops and castings will take place during the month of May, which will focus on the journey of being a Miss Earth Ambassador, a key focus on waste management, separation at source, recycling, climate change and food security.

Entries close on 8 April.
