Sand Mining Film
Based on the success of the “Our Rhino” participatory film, the STEPS/Caretakers – K2C partnership decided to respond to the communities’ request and they filmed a new documentary “Our Sand”.
Illegal sand mining has been reported by Environmental Monitors for the past three years as a serious threat to the environment and livelihoods of our people. “Our Sand” is telling the story of how an Environmental Monitor tracks and investigate the scale and impact of this environmental problem – but also how solutions can be found.
This film will be showcased at a Community Environmental Film Gathering in April in Cape Town. Community Films from all over Southern Africa will be shared.
“We will then use this film in May to do Community Screenings with all our communities and Stakeholders”, Vusi Tshabalala , EM Programme Manager said.
