Global Citizen Webinar - In conversation with Clem Sunter

Description: The University of the Free State (UFS) and the South African Chamber of Commerce UK (SACC UK) are pleased to present a Global Citizen Series conversation, Exploring Scenarios: South Africa’s Democracy in the face of the next general elections, from the perspective of Clem Sunter, international best-selling author, futurologist, and scenario planner.

Clem will join UFS Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Prof Francis Petersen, and SACC UK Chairperson, Sharon Constançon for a conversation that answers the question "What does the future hold for South Africa’s democracy in the face of the upcoming general elections?"

Thirty years ago, the majority of South Africans won the right to vote for the first time, leading to South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. Join us for a conversation on 20 May 2024 as we explore scenarios depicted by Clem Sunter ahead of South Africa’s seventh general elections scheduled for 29 May 2024.

This event is free, but booking is essential. Zoom links will be shared in the 24 hours prior to the event.
