Joburg residents are rolling up their sleeves to do good while earning tickets for the Global Citizen Festival.
The City of Joburg in partnership with Global Citizen hosted a Clean-Up Day yesterday to improve the environment in Soweto and other regions of the city.
It takes place every third Saturday of the month.
Clearing rubbish and signing petitions are some of the good deeds citizens can do to stand a chance to attend the festival at FNB Stadium on December 2.
Joburg mayor Herman Mashaba said the monthly city-wide campaign raised awareness about littering, illegal dumping, overloading of bins, and the dilapidation of open spaces.
“There is a lot of filthiness and our people are not concerned about the environment. The Global Citizen has identified Joburg to be the first city to be involved with this global initiative.
