4 May| CCR Public Dialogue on powerful Trade Unions: South African drivers of regional economic growth?

The Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR), Cape Town, in collaboration with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), Johannesburg invites you and members of your organisation to
a Public Dialogue on powerful Trade Unions: South African drivers of regional economic growth?

2-4 June | Renewable Energy for Rural Households

Many South Africans are confronted by the challenge of energy poverty. These citizens do not have sufficient access to safe, reliable and affordable energy. This socio-economic challenge is prevalent in rural areas where most of the impoverished population resides. The usage of safe energy sources is very minimal in these localities, and community members do not have sufficient income to obtain the required levels of energy security.

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung foundation has partnered with the Nelson Mandela Initiative to address energy poverty in rural areas. This will be done through the facilitation of an action dialogue with various participants from various organizations. Participants will be drawn from government, academia, NGOs and the business sector. The main objective of the dialogue is to create pragmatic and accessible interventions for introducing renewable energy solutions in rural areas.
