Four generations to talk

2015-06-09 06:01

The Novalis Ubuntu Institute’s third intergenerational dialogues mini-conference will be held on Monday in partnership with the Ubuntu Academy.

The theme of this year’s free conference is “Re-awakening the spirit of ubuntu across generations”.

The event from 10:00 to 16:00 is open to the public.

The mini-conference is expected to include an audience of four generations of elders and youth who will exchange ideas and share their experiences around the theme.

Key speakers will be Phila Nkuzo and Sandi Sajake (from the Institute), as well as Lilian Schulze and Mugendi M’Rithaa from the Academy.

Anne-Lise Bure, managing director of the Institute, says intergenerational dialogues are useful for engaging in cultural-community issues through stories, intimate conversations and building community pride.

“The dialogues are about each generation expressing itself, reflecting on its own convictions and reaching agreements on topics where they can come closer together,” she says.

The Novalis Ubuntu Institute is a non-profit organisation in Wynberg that provides holistic education programmes for adult learners. The Ubuntu Academy is a school for arts, entrepreneurship and leadership in Cape Town.
