Media and communications for conservation and sustainable development has been a principal focus of Jive Media Africa over the past few years – as demonstrated by a number of exciting projects that we have undertaken. In particular;
- Jive Media has completed a comic strip and animations campaign for Greening 2010, a Dept of Environmental Affairs Legacy Project of the 2010 World Cup.
- Jive Media produced Newsletters for the Sani Pass Border Relocation Project. The projects aims to redevelop the current Sani Border Post located on Sani Pass to the Good Hope Site that has been selected on the periphery of the Ukhlamba Drakensberg Park World Heritage Site. The repositioning of the border post will thus provide a more functional border operation that will support the international trade and development relations of the partner countries with the TFCA whilst ensuring that the impact to the environment is minimised and managed with more effectiveness.
- The Maloti Drakensberg Experience – Exploring the Maloti Drakensberg Route has just hit the shelves in all good bookstores. It was launched by Ministers of Tourism from both Lesotho and South Africa. Jive Media was commissioned by the Maloti Drakensberg Transfrontier Project (MDTP) to produce this book, which we then conceptualised, researched, wrote, edited and co-published. The book aims to promote sustainable tourism as a livelihood in the Maloti and Drakensberg Mountain region – spanning Lesotho and three provinces in South Africa. Read more about the book…
- Jive Media has completed a Marketing and Communication strategy, as well as a number of products and newsletters for the KZN Biodiversity Stewardship Programme. This consultative process involves a broad range of interest groups and will pioneer the communication of the exciting stewardship concept that aims to bring large areas of land under formal conservation.
- Over the past four years we have been the PR Services Provider to the Maloti Drakensberg Transfrontier Project, a Bioregional Planning initiative spanning the Maloti Mountains in the Kingdom of Lesotho and the Drakensberg Region in KwaZulu-Natal. In this capacity we have conceptualised and produced books, newsletters, eNewsletters, posters and press releases (in a number of South African languages where necessary), for broad target audiences.
