Strategize. Mobilize. Resist. Engaging with Student Activism


You are invited to join a 3 week online-seminar of cross-campus conversations hosted by the University of Cape Town’s Global Citizenship Programme and the University of Toronto’s Hart House. The sessions are designed for meaningful conversations on student activism, focusing on strategies and tools used in student movements and what it means to achieve tangible change. We will be using case studies from each campus, as well as our own experiences as students, as the starting point for reflection, sharing and learning.  All sessions will take place on Zoom - an online video communications tool, which will allow us to all be in a virtual classroom together. Therefore it is advised that you have a stable internet connection, a device with a webcam and microphone (either a smartphone or laptop).


  • Stable internet connection
  • Device with webcam and microphone
  • Attend all three 2hr sessions
  • Complete a short activity before the first session
  • Complete a short reflection blog
