On Wednesday, 16 October 2013 Northlink College launched the Go Green campaign at the Central Office, where the management took the liberty of blowing bio-degradable bubbles into the air in celebration of adopting the green concept in the College.
This concept came about when a group of South African Further Education and Training Colleges attended a 12 day presentation on a skills development programme for a greener economy in Germany in June 2013. They also visited some Colleges in Germany which rendered successful in this undertaking.
Says Neil Maggott, Acting CEO of Northlink College: “Although this is the beginning for us, we have to realise that this is a serious matter which will inevitably affect the future around energy saving and the environment we take for granted. This is a process which requires a mind-shift and might take years, but Northlink made the start today.
The seven Campuses will learn how to reduce, reuse and recycle in the coming months.
