Minister Edna Molewa to deliver a public lecture on Climate Change at the University of Johannesburg

09 September 2015


The Minister of Environmental Affairs, Mrs Edna Molewa, will deliver a public lecture on 14 September 2015 at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) aimed at heightening awareness on the effects of Climate Change and the steps citizens, business, civic society and government agencies can take to reduce the impact of climate change in South Africa.

The lecture is a build up to the 21st Conference of Parties to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to be held in Paris from 30 November 2015 to 11 December 2015. 

The DEA will collaborate with various universities and academic institutions in the country to raise awareness on climate change through a series of public lectures. The University of Johannesburg was chosen to take the lead as the Department’s mandate is aligned with the university’s environmental programme.

The Minister will lead the session, supported by senior managers from the DEA Climate Change branch, followed by a Question and Answer session.
