GreenMatter’s Vision & Mission GreenMatter intends, by 2030, to develop a socially equitable and suitably skilled workforce of biodiversity leaders, professional and technicians. The aim of this is to optimally implement national dynamic, expanding and increasingly complex biodiversity and development mandates and goals.

THE VISION

THE MISSION

of GreenMatter is that of “a higher quality of life and improved access to education for all people and the conservation of nature in perpetuity”.

of GreenMatter is to develop human capacity for biodiversity conservation and to develop future custodians of South Africa’s natural heritage.

Strategic Objectives One of the goals of GreenMatter includes transformation in the biodiversity sector. As such, it also needs to be transformative in its execution. This means that when stakeholders, advisors or project staff are selected for contributions to strategy implementation, equity and the opportunity to build skills should be strongly considered.

Seeking Multiple Transformations GreenMatter embraces a three-fold approach to transformation, which encompasses:

The need to improve racial equity in the sector

The global and national changes in the approaches to and models for biodiversity conservation, management and research; and

SYSTEMIC IMPLEMENTATION CANNOT SOLELY FOCUS AT AN INDIVIDUAL BENEFICIARY LEVEL. IT NEEDS TO GIVE EQUAL ATTENTION TO DEVELOPING THE CAPACITY OF INSTITUTIONS AND ADDRESSING STRUCTURAL CONSTRAINTS.

 ”

The need to transform the way in which organisations function, in order to render them more effective in achieving their mandates.

GreenMatter’s Vision & Mission

Message from the Chairperson The past year marks the ninth year of GreenMatter as a committed partner in the implementation of South Africa’s 20-year Biodiversity Human Capital Development Strategy (BHCDS). Building communities to support the growth of biodiversity skills and capabilities in South Africa is our response to the growing outcry against the urgent threats to global sustainability. Together with our partners we have established flagship programmes to support a cadre of postgraduate biodiversity scientists in their academic and professional development. We continue to build a community that combines research, practice and policy in the integration of biodiversity content and teacher development. And we have grown a network of vibrant young enviropreneurs with disruptive ideas to confront environmental degradation. Through these initiatives we  give expression to the values of the Sustainable Development Goals targeted at  improving education and skills development systems in the biodiversity sector As we enter our tenth year, GreenMatter will be embarking on an evaluation of its role as part of a broader ten-year review of the Biodiversity Human Capital Development Strategy. As we take stock of our successes and lessons, we will chart a way forward that sustains our catalytic role in human capacity development within a dynamic SA biodiversity network. GreenMatter’s purpose is to be a catalyst to achieve sustainable and equitable quality of life for all in South Africa by growing human capacity for biodiversity and promoting active involvement by its citizenry. We encourage participation by all partners in the environmental sector to help us to achieve our purpose, for the benefit of the sector

GREENMATTER WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND OUR SINCEREST THANKS TO DR SIBUSISO MANZINI, OUR CEO AT THE TIME THAT THIS WORK WAS EXECUTED. HIS EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP OVER HIS 5 -YEAR SERVICE TO GREENMATTER HAS TAKEN THE ORGANISATION THROUGH MANY VICTORIES AND HAS HELPED TO ESTABLISH GREENMATTER AS A PROGRAMME THAT SERVES TO DEVELOP HUMAN CAPABILITY IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL SECTOR. WE WISH YOU THE VERY BEST WITH YOUR FUTURE PROFESSIONAL ENDEAVOURS.

       ”

We thank all our partners for investing in the sustainability of our planet through their support for GreenMatter. We extend a special vote of thanks to our founding partners, The Lewis Foundation and South African National Biodiversity Institute for their ongoing support. SHAFIKA ISAACS GreenMatter Chairperson

GREEN MATTER ANNUAL REPORT 2019


Message from the Programme Manager Developing leaders is important for proper environmental management, conservation and promoting sustainable practices. Leadership skills are the driving force of change. Producing behavioural change is 80% about leadership and 20% about management. In most change efforts, those percentages are reversed. In South Africa we continue to produce great managers, but we need to develop great leaders especially for the environmental sector. The environmental sector is cross sectoral, in the sense that each sector directly relies on the environment for resources. Therefore, it is tantamount to protect our natural resources to ensure a sustainable future. This can only be achieved through developing people to take on this mammoth task. National, provincial and local organisations, including government departments and private companies currently confront challenges such as the need to adapt to a changing climate, design of sustainable food systems, reinvention of cities for sustainability, development of markets for ecosystem goods and services, implementation of renewable energy systems and the protection of vulnerable species as well as the protection of vulnerable communities from environmental injustice. This requires that political, scientific and economic leadership is developed to help tackle these issues and lead a way in finding solutions and managing the outcomes.

We invite you along for this journey, to collaborate and help us to drive collective action in developing and supporting environmental leaders for our future. We’re placing the future of our biodiversity in the right hands and the its looking bright.

GreenMatter strives to address leadership skills and personal and professional development of those wishing to work for and care for the environment. Our work intends to develop individuals, communities and concepts that reflect the challenges and solutions of tomorrow, creating a balance between the economic, environmental and social imperative.

JANAVI DA SILVA GreenMatter Programme Manager

Our work is also focused on creating a culture where people are influenced to act jointly and creatively to confront challenges with an emphasis on collective action. With the ultimate purpose to mobilise and capacitate individuals in an organization or group of organisations to realise a vision of long-term ecological sustainability and a better future for all. GreenMatter undertakes to do all of this whilst aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This alignment is not only reflected in the content of our various programmes but also in our implementation process. With our main focus on building the capacity and develop leadership qualities in the current and future custodians of South Africa’s natural heritage. We look to partner with organisations who share our vision for a more inclusive and robust environmental sector so that we can secure ecologically sustainable development and use of natural resources while promoting justifiable economic and social development, to honour Section 24 of The Constitution of South Africa.

Message from the Programme Manager

Summary of Operations As a mega-biodiverse country, with challenging social development needs, the weight of responsibility on South Africa’s environmental organisations is immense. There is a need to attract, develop, deploy and retain the best talent available to feed the growing skills demand in the country that can support the proper management of our natural environment. GreenMatter is shaped by the following strategic goals: ●● attraction of talented people to the sector, in particular black South Africans; ●● facilitating access to study and work; ●● developing more relevant and high-quality skills for the sector through innovations in higher education; ●● providing opportunities for up-skilling to those already working in the sector; ●● helping organizations to retain talented staff; and; ●● creating enabling conditions for all the above through lobbying, coordination, monitoring and evaluation at the national level.

Our dynamic national context, provides instructive food for thought when planning our programmes on a yearly basis. The challenge of the supply of high-level skills in South Africa continues to be the centrepiece of discussions in education and training. The quality of education at all levels is a subject of much debate and concern. Equity in relation to the representation of black people in management and highly technical skills remains elusive. The recent protests at the universities regarding tuition fees highlighted the need to continue to provide financial support for deserving students so that they may access higher education. Meanwhile, the growing spectre of unemployed graduates is indicative of misaligned skills and the need to bridge the gap between education and the world of work.

Meet our Fellows One of our many GreenMatter fellows is showcased here. They were each PhD candidates during 2016, working in areas highly relevant to priority skill areas for South Africa’s biodiversity conservation mandate. Preparing for the future of conservation, considering the implications of the 4th Industrial Revolution, complementary disciplines are increasingly going to be combined to promote innovation and complex problem solving. One of these disciplines is being studied by our GreenMatter Fellow, Tsele Nthane through his PhD is small-scale fisheries and ICT. He has combined a unique approach to data management and marine sciences to better manage small-scale fisheries. His PhD research is at the forefront of innovative ICT applications addressing complex socio-ecological problems in South Africa’s small-scale fisheries sector. His project is a collaboration between the University of Cape Town, DAFF, and small-scale fishers along the West Coast. Through co-designed traceability, logbook, and co-operative development, his project aims to inform governance of the small-scale fisheries with the particular goal of further integrating small-scale fishers into new and existing value chains in line with the socio-economic goals of the Small-Scale Fisheries Policy. He is engaged in a broad array of extracurricular activities and is a keen sportsman.

Imvelisi (Entrepreneurship Development) Imvelisi as an ideation/conceptualization phase training intervention for young aspiring environmental entrepreneurs. The purpose of the programme is to ensure a streamlined innovation support system for young people considering careers as water or biodiversity business owners by helping participants through the ideation phase of business development and preparing them for pitches to mentors, incubation programmes and early stage entrepreneurship investors. In so doing the intention is to increase the pool of “enviropreneurs” who can be taken up by mainstream incubators and business funding streams.


With core investment from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) enabled the Imvelisi team to leverage additional resources to expand the scope of the project. The purpose of this programme is to: ●● Generate awareness about business opportunities in water, waste, energy, food security, sustainability and biodiversity sectors ●● Understand the support available to people interested in becoming entrepreneurs (we profiled the Imvelisi initiative) ●● Learn from entrepreneurs’ personal experience about being a business owners ●● Learn about tools to help you in the first steps of establishing a business (business canvas) ●● Provide a networking opportunity for interested in entrepreneurship

During 2018, Imvelisi focused on research and stakeholder engagement in market opportunities within the Green Economy, in order to promote the development of environmental entrepreneurs. From these engagements we will shortly be publishing the findings on the South African biomass economy in an academic journal. Our intention is to increase engagement with the sector regarding green economy business research and publication, whilst linking opportunities and information to entrepreneurs and supporting the growth of green entrepreneur ecosystems.

Fundisa for Change (Teacher Education) In the 2018/2019 financial year the Fundisa for Change programme experienced a transitional period with the coordination hub moving to SANBI from January of 2019. Highlights of the year included:

Capacity building and research

Policy and Advocacy

Engagement with the textbook writers and materials development process

156 teachers and teacher educators engaged in Fundisa related training activities.

Fundisa for Change particpated in the Community of Practice for Science Education.

2 new modules Green Economy and Entrepreneurship are being developed as exmplars and online modules.

During this reporting period Each year the Preservice courses through the BED, PGCE and Masters courses reach a new cohort of teachers in training.

Fundisa for Change was incorporated into the 3rd communication on Climate Change to UNFCCC as a programme for upscaling.

The Fundisa for Change teaching water in Social Science Gr 7 to 9 has been reviewed, redeveloped and piloted with teachers in Eastern Cape.

Approximately 60 case studies are being synthesised into a research book. Research has been synthesised into easily accessible resources to inform policy across various stakeholders.

Fundisa for Change has also been incorporated as a programme in the Draft Environmental Education Strategy for upscaling.

National Advocacy During 2018, GreenMatter participated in multiple advocacy initiatives with the aim of strengthening the Human Capital Development conservation in the biodiversity/environmental sector, amongst government, NGO’s and private sector organisations. Amongst others we took part in important sectoral conversations around skills, education and developing South Africa’s biodiversity Human Capital.

Gauteng Environmental Education Forum (GEEF) One such forum, in which GreenMatter takes part is the Gauteng Environmental Education Forum (GEEF), an independent platform for various Gauteng stakeholders who have an interest in the environment and environmental education. The Forum aims to facilitate behavioural change towards sustainability, through partnerships and networking.

Science Forum South Africa (SFSA) Science Forum South Africa is an event designed as a “public science” event open to all interested stakeholders, which provides a platform for discussion and debate on the role of science in South African and African society as well as globally. The two-day programme brings together more than 1 500 participants for discussion and debate in plenary sessions, short seminars and individual lectures labelled as “Science talks.”

National Environmental Sector Skills Planning Forum (NESSPF) GreenMatter, along with important biodiversity and environmental stakeholders participates in a national conversation centred around skills planning for the environmental sector. The forum is a responsive national gathering of partners that are actively involved in catalysing and supporting nationally relevant environmental skills development planning initiatives. The forum meets on a quarterly basis to address cross sectoral matters related to environmental skills.

SACNASP (South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions) During 2018, GreenMatter participated in Science Week schools presentations at previously disadvantaged schools to promote green skills and careers. This is an ongoing relationship and we seek to continue expanding on our areas of collaboration.

National Science and Technology Forum (NSTF) The NSTF brings together over a hundred organisations that have a stake in science, technology and innovation. Apart from partnering in the awards, GreenMatter has contributed to championing biodiversity and environmental skills and sustainability and green economy concepts in the agenda. To this end, a number of seminars held by the NSTF during the year included a strong focus on environmental and sustainability topics. NSTF Awards – 28 June 2018 Emperors Palace, Kempton Park

GREENMATTER PARTNERSHIP (RF) NPC (Registration Number 2017/187298/08) Financial Statements for the year ended 28 February 2019 Statement of Financial Position for the year ended 28 February 2019

Report on the Audit of the Financial Statements

Assets Non-Current Assets Property, plant and equipment

Qualified Opinion

Current Assets

We have audited the financial statements of Greenmatter Partnership (RF) NPC set out on pages 8 to 17, which comprise the statement of financial position as at 28 February 2019, and the statement of comprehensive income, the statement of changes in equity and the statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies. In our opinion, except for the possible effect of the matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion section of our report, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the organisation as at 28 February 2019, and its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standard for Small and Medium-sized Entities.

Basis for Qualified Opinion In common with similar organisations, it is not feasible for Greenmatter to institute accounting controls over donations received prior to the initial entry of the receipts in the accounting records. Accordingly, it was impractible for us to extend our examinations beyond the receipts recorded. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the financial statements section of our report. We are independent of the organisation in accordance with the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors Code of Professional Conduct for Registered Auditors (IRBA Code) and other independence requirements applicable to performing audits of financial statements in South Africa. We have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the IRBA Code and in accordance with other ethical requirements applicable to performing audits in South Africa. The IRBA Code is consistent with the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (Parts A and B). We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified opinion.

Responsibilities of the Directors for the Financial Statements The directors are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standard for Small and Medium-sized Entities, and for such internal control as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. In preparing the financial statements, the directors are responsible for assessing the organisation’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless the directors either intend to liquidate the organisation or to cease operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so.

Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements In terms of the IRBA Rule published in Government Gazette Number 39475 dated 4 December 2015, we report that Ransome Russouw Incorporated have been the auditors of Greenmatter Partnership (RF) NPC for 2 years.
