This Context MasterClass lecture offers you a unique opportunity to get inspired by examples of civic engagement in South Africa. Our guest speakers Ms Talent Nyathi and Ms Jude Clark are two experienced trainers from Kleinmond, South Africa. They work for Training for Transformation, an international training institute working on strengthening capacity for social change.
Staff members of Training for Transformation train a new level of leadership in development education whose theory is grounded in practice. It helps development practitioners gaining new knowledge, insights, and skills of how to identify local issues, engage with local authorities and connect the community based organisations to national and international civil society movements.
In this lecture Ms Talent Nyathi and Ms Jude Clark will share their knowledge on how to link local and national initiatives to global civic movements, which links closely to global citizenship. Furthermore they will add new impulses to the debate with regard to development education in the Netherlands. Take part in this lecture and discover what you can learn from this Southern perspective.
Following the lecture an optional workshop (werkatelier) will be held. Here you can set to work to apply the insights of the lecture within a small group. During this workshop civic engagement in the South will be linked to issues and dilemma’s from your own work practice.
