The Sustainable Thriving Communities Project is a sustainable community development project that targets stakeholders working for and within sustainable livelihoods and thriving communities in the Western Cape. The participants in this project are from two groups: (1) those who are making progress in sustainable development and (2) those who want to learn about the impact of sustainable livelihood and flourishing communities.
The Novalis Ubuntu Institute holds regular Sustainable Thriving Communities Forums throughout the year providing the two participating groups with an opportunity to interact.
The Novalis Ubuntu Institute’s support for sustainable thriving communities, include the hosting of the Cape Town Talent Exchange Market and the Second Hand Group Original Market.
