How can South Africa’s young people find innovative tools for not just every day challenges, social transformation in a country that’s going through a phase of transition?
"The quarterly ACTIVATE! Exchange opens a dialogue for young people from all walks of life to discuss Government, Social Responsibility and other pressing issues."
10/12 Gauteng Lion's Den
A group of Activators recently had the opportunity to present their business plans to a panel of corporate leaders and potential investors at a Lion’s Den forum in Johannesburg for the first time.
The ACTIVATE! Exchange is a quarterly discussion forum with the aim of drawing together young people and thought leaders from civil society as well as government and business to explore ways in which positive social change may be brought about in South Africa.
ACTIVATE! and Gun Free South Africa hosted a series of peace and non-violence workshops across the country. These workshops came at such a poignant moment as the nation was reeling from the tragic shooting of Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa and co-incided with Fifa’s call for gun owners to surrender their weapons.
As we work our way through 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children, Activator Moloko Brian Ngoepe takes stock of our situation and looks at what is needed to move toward achieving 365 days of non-violence.
