The train has already stopped in 17 cities and towns across South Africa  to raise awareness about the importance of reducing our carbon footprint – just in time for the 17th climate change conference currently underway in Durban. Throughout its journey, the train’s on board educators have opened dialogue with everyone from individuals to community groups, churches, schools, and even businesses. After the conference, it will continue on and eventually return to Cape Town .
Indalo Yethu’s CEO, June Joseph-Langa told South Africa’s SABC news  that the train is designed to reach people who lack access to information, and stressed the importance that everyone understand how they will be affected by climate change. We love this unconventional approach, particularly since it’s on rails, thereby promoting public transportation  at the same time.
