As a student or apprentice you will receive current industry-specific knowledge to help you apply your theoretical studies in real situations and integrate into the workforce. This knowledge sharing will be through ad-free videos (and podcasts) 1 week before they are published on our YouTube channel. Not a big enough deal? Well then,... you will have access to the seven most recent Premium videos that dive deeper into more advanced interpretations and applications of environmental law. We will also give you a voice! You will have the opportunity to request topics that you would like us to cover in the future, and participate, that is ask questions, in live weekly Q&As on our private Discord server (chatroom). If that isn't enough, you are also entitled to a one-on-one conversation with one of our consultants each month, using our toll free number. Jobseekers will also receive the option to enter our candidate database for potential job openings. Join the club and grow your self-confidence.

The 'Impi' pledge entitles you to our mentorship programme, which includes up to 15min of free project-specific consultation each month and 24/7 access to the ecoleges Patreon community, where you can share and gain valuable insight from peers and professionals. One big happy family. Not enough? We want to help increase your knowledge and skills by giving you access to the full ecoleges library of Premium videos.

About ecoleges

Ignorance is more expensive than education, for both our back pocket and the planet!

Join our Patreon community!... and become part of an informed network engaged in action.

We are using videos and voice channels to create an awareness about our environmental legislation, and more importantly, help with its interpretation and application. In so doing, we hope to empower all South Africans to make environmentally responsible decisions and protect our beautiful country without having to rely completely on corporate consultants.

Our tiered membership program ensures that no-one will be left out, from students and apprentices to professionals, and farmers to business leaders. Together, that is with your support and engagement, we can make a difference.

Don't forget to log your watch time if you are a professional natural scientist registered with SACNASP; you can earn 0.1 category 3b CPD points for every hour of video content that is viewed.
