One of the challenges of running a programme that seeks to provide students with opportunities to reflect critically on issues of citizenship or social justice, is that once you wrap up a course or workshop you wonder whether you achieved your objective. It is from these questions that we bring you a series of feature pieces where we interviewed UCT Global Citizenship (GC) alumni, to find out what life looks like “after GC”. It is one of our attempts at interrogating the impact we have had over the years.
Join us for an exciting opportunity to engage internationally and to share perspectives and lived experiences. The 2018-2019 Hart House Global Commons will connect students along with and a wide range of community partners and civil society actors in all locations to explore local and global questions and actions geared towards building better societies that reflect, uphold, and institutionalize the full equality of women. See poster for more details.
Cape Town has come under a lot of fire with various civic associations and organisations speaking out against gentrification of the Central Business District (CBD) and its surrounding areas. One of the major challenges posed by gentrification is the very nostalgic sense of displacement of Black, Coloured working class people from their homes and communities.
The Global Citizenship Programme is pleased to announce that we have invited Dr Bettina von Lieres from the University of Toronto, Scarborough to host a participatory workshop at which we will talk about the idea of citizenship, in particular the role of power and resistance in shaping more inclusive forms of citizenship.
Date: Monday, July 16th. Time: 09h30 – 11h00. Venue: CHED Boardroom, 6th Floor, Hoerrikwaggo Building.
