Young citizens World Cafe

Last year during the National Schools Festival (which runs immediately after the National Arts Festival) we ran a World Cafe for school goers. What a fantastic opportunity to engage with young people from all over the country about their ideas of citizenship, their responsibilities and how they feel about the future. We were fortunate to have Fortune Gamanya to facilitate the sessions, which allowed the young people to interact with each other, bounce ideas off each other and to share their very fresh and exciting ideas about the future of South Africa.

Here is a snapshot of what took place and what some of the outcomes were:
