Presented by: Jay Naidoo, J&J Group and Chair, Development Bank, formerly Minister in the President’s Office responsible for RDP
In this lunch-time lecture Jay Naidoo will reflect on his activist youth when universities were nurseries of democratic debate. The lecture will consider how a changed world has impacted on society and on the role of today’s youth. It will focus on the evolution of youth activism in South Africa and around the world, especially in Egypt and Tunisia where dictatorships have recently been toppled. What future do coming generations of students face as they enter a world that is more complex than ever and which many believe is at a tipping point? Is there a possibility of a new world driven by respect for human values of integrity, humility and care for our environment. Ultimately what does the future hold for South Africa?
