The Vukani Environmental Movement is a registered non-profit organisation that was established in 2016. The organisation focuses it’s work on addressing environmental issues within the Mpumalanga Highveld of South Africa. This was promoted by a lack of engagement from authorities regarding the increasing environmental issues emerging in communities. VEM engages with a variety of stakeholders that are impacting communities.
The organisation holds open discussions on topical subjects like climate change and air pollution with different groups like the local municipality, health sector, energy and mining sectors. As well as schools, religious and civil society groups. They also seek to raise awareness on environmental issues and inform the public on existing legislation to enable them to advocate for change.
