The Annual Green Campuses Conference is the biggest gathering and a platform for students and staff that are involved in campus greening and sustainability projects in Institutions of Higher Learning. It is an occasion for great experience and continuous engagement for students. This Annual Green Campuses Conference adopts the strength-based approach. The approaches concentrate on the inherent strengths of individuals, groups and organisations, deploying personal strengths to boost recovery and empowerment. 

During the conference, students communicate with each other aiming at sharing ideas with each other, orally and written in the form of presentation of posters and through the one-on-one or small group conversations.

During his opening remark, Mr Quintin Koetaan encouraged students not to stop talking about greening and sustainability when the conference ends but take the trend back to their different campuses and even their homes. 

During his appreciation message, Mr Zwivhuya Netshivhambe responded to the call for taking the trend of sustainability back home as advised by Mr Koetaan. For more information on his speech please use the link below:
