Youth Reflections on the Life and Legacy of Nelson Mandela


The Office of Leadership and Social Responsibility, the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation, the UWC-Robben Island Mayibuye Archives, and a group of UWC student leaders will host Youth Reflections on the Life and Legacy of Nelson Mandela on Thursday, 17 July 2014 from 12h00 until 15h00 in the UWC Library Auditorium.
As South Africa celebrates 20 years of democracy, it is equally important to reflect on the past. The event, which will feature artifacts from the Mayibuye Archives, a discussion panel, open dialogues, and a student poetry act, underscores the important role that youth play in finding solutions to the challenges with which the nation currently grapples. Youth Reflections Dialogue aims to help you take ownership of taking South Africa forward towards another 20 years of transformation.
Nelson Mandela remarked, "It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it". In the spirit of Mandela and his vision to spread justice and freedom for all, this is an opportunity for the UWC campus community to become a part of global movement for change.
