EcoDoc Africa is a not-for-profit organisation based in South Africa and working on projects throughout Africa, with the main aim of bringing visual clarity to environmental issues, experiences and projects.
Our Mission is “to raise awareness and promote good decision making in support of ecological sustainability and social justice through the provision of multi-media materials that inspire people and promote and understanding of the positive and negative impacts of different developmental approaches.”
EcoDoc Africa came about as a result of the growing realisation of the power of video and people’s narratives to facilitate understanding of complex environmental issues, and to combat environmental impact reports which often reduce people to numbers and environmental impacts to being insignificant. At the same time the advent of broad band internet has provided an important outlet for these visual documentaries and narratives to be shared with interested parties around the world at very low cost, and thereby to facilitate international campaigning.
