1.     Get Talking:

·       Up We Go Mzansi are focusing on the theme “Speeches that changed our World” showcasing short film remakes of South African speeches that brought great impact: Thabo Mbeki’s “I am an African” and Zozibini Tunzi’s 2019 Miss Universe speech on women empowerment. These are produced by BTE Network in partnership with South African celebrities and influencers including Peggy Sue Khumalo, Stella Dlangalala, Tumelo Don Mosenye and Rose Hall.

·       Up We Go Mzansi encourage youth-focussed community-based organizations/schools/individuals to hold events (online or in-person) where youth will watch these video clips. They will then use the Talk Group guide provided by gold Youth Development agency, to discuss topics brought up in these speeches and broader social cohesion themes. Through this process, the youth are invited to come up with their own actionable solutions to issues in their communities. Guidelines to take part in this engagement pathway can be found on the upwegomzansi website.
