The Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) is accepting applications for the Southern Africa Regional Civic Education Workshop in Elections and Governance are now open. The workshop will take place on the 11th – 12th of April 2018 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The aim of the workshops is to create awareness, enhance knowledge and develop relevant skills in electoral and governance processes and leadership among participants, in order for them to effectively communicate and apply them in influencing and mobilizing other youth to actively participate in the processes and other community and national development activities.
The Mandela Institute for Development Studies (MINDS) is a continental institute that seeks to address the short, medium, and long-term development challenges in Africa in a holistic and comprehensive manner. MINDS emerged out of the observation that development efforts in Africa have failed to meet expectations with respect to social, institutional and economic outcomes in comparison to other regions of the world such as Asia.
MINDS will cover all travel and workshop expenses.
- Applications will be open to people between 18 and 45 years old
- Applicants must come from: Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
