The SA2030 Presentation Evening for high school learners in the Western Cape is an initiative to bring dynamic young minds together to identify and address important issues in building a sustainable South Africa for 2030, as is stipulated in the National Planning Commission's agenda. The event was sponsored by Lion of Africa Insurance.
"Lion of Africa Insurance is proud to support an initiative that allows young South Africans to share their unique insight and solutions to the issues they are likely to inherit in 2030. On the evening learners focused on areas of the National Planning Commission's Plan, which include transformation and unity, economy and education. All these areas are vital for a sustainable future," says Adam Samie, CEO of Lion of Africa Insurance.
Solutions must be realistic
Western Cape high schools were invited to participate in the SA2030 programme and 22 groups of four entered the competition. These groups were asked to compose a detailed research essay presenting their ideas and vision for a sustainable South Africa in 2030. Of these groups, six were chosen to present their essays at the first ever SA2030 Presentation Evening, which will also be sent to the National Planning Commission.
The presentations were judged on the learners' innovative and realistic solutions to the issues South Africa is currently facing. The winning group was from Springfield Convent situated in Wynberg, Cape Town. Learners included Grace Bridgman, Lara Murray and Lauren de Bruyn, who were handed a prize by Denis Goldberg, an political activist who was sentenced with Mandela other key members of the anti-apartheid movement.
Lion of Africa Insurance is also sponsoring the book that is being created from the top 13 essays which is scheduled for release at the end of August.
