Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. ENYC plays a big role in sustainable development and has adapted sustainable business practices.

ENYC is always ready to keep the youth active in all aspects including keeping the environment clean, and will continue with its commitment to sustainable development. Sustainable development is important as it saves national budget, fulfills the need of people, conserve natural resources, helps in the coordination between the natural resources and people and conserves natural resources for future generation.

In support of the National clean Up Campaign, ENYC has joined hands with the Ministry of Tourism and Environmental Affairs and the country at large, in ensuring a safe and clean environment. The council has been part of a number of clean up campaigns, including the launch of the movement.

As part of the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Youth Affairs Madze, the Council participated in the Clean Eswatini Campaign at Buhleni led by Hon Minister Madze Bulunga. This clean-up campaign was in line with the vision of inculcating a spirit of healthy living among Emaswati. The kingdom of Eswatini was listed amongst the top five best tourist destination worldwide. This is a challenge to the nation to ensure environmental cleanliness that is welcoming to tourist.

On that regard, in collaboration with Mahamba Gorge, the Council took it upon itself to ensure the Shiselweni community was clean prior the Shiselweni Umhlanga Ceremony.
