The Garden Route region of South Africa is recognised and valued by many local and international people as a pristine part of the world with many naturally occurring wonders. It is considered by many to be a first choice place to live and thrive. It is a very popular destination for vacations and for those that are entering their retirement years. In addition more recently, partly caused by the COVID 19 Pandemic, there has seen a significant increase in semigration to the Garden Route resulting in the largest growth for any District in the country as reported by Census 2022.
Located within this veritable garden of Eden is Garden Route Skills Mecca, a concept that the District Municipality in collaboration with stakeholders in all seven local Municipalities are implementing to the benefit of all who live and thrive in this region. To ensure continuity and alignment to the processes that have organically emerged with the development of the Garden Route Skills Mecca since 2017, existing institutional arrangements and structures have been adopted, adjusted as necessary and are being formalised cross the district.
