Welcome to the DUT Green Campus Initiative (GCI)



The green campus Initiative (GCI) was conceptualised during the year 2011 when South Africa was preparing to host UN climate change conference.Durban University of Technology has achieved a lot in terms of knowledge,education and implementation of GCI from day of its inception in August 2012.

GCI is formed by students and staff to address the issues of sustainability at DUT.Since then the membership has swelled and this volunteer organisation has established itself as a force to be reckoned with campus and residences.

GCI is fresh,dynamic and action-based.We aim to bring about lasting change to make DUT a more environmentally-friendly institution.

who are we?

Durban University of Technology started attending the AGCI conference in 2011 at Tshwane University of Technology with no understanding or clue of what AGCI really was about, from that conference we learnt what AGCI is. Unfortunately the program wasn’t implemented that very same year because the students who attended the 2011 conference were 3rd year students who were studying their final year.

In June 2012 our delegates attended a 5days conference in Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) where they extended their knowledge about AGCI. DUT AGCI was launched on the 25th of August 2012 at Fred Crooks Sports Centre, where each residence was given a platform to present their AGCI programs on how to save electricity, water, waste products, transport and sustainable foods. After the launch in 2012, many AGCI programs were implemented.
