Starting points for Active Citizenship : Lets Talk Possibility Episode 67

Active citizenship, loosely, is the idea that inasmuch we have rights, those should be balanced with responsibilities. The connected world we live in means we can rally behind causes and interests that resonate with us. What does it mean, in reality, to be an active citizen? And how can we become more active? We ask three active citizens and thought leaders: Walter Pike, Mabine Seabe II and Colin Byrne

    Mentorship for South Africa's Youth and Why it is Crucial : Lets Talk Possibility Episode 66

    South Africa is at a cross-roads in terms of its education system. Learners are not being readied for the world of work, or given the scope to think beyond their existing reference points.

Join us as we talk to Mali Mothiba, founder of GANG, and Telana Simpson, founder of Inner Coaching, as we discuss how positive guidance and the developing soft skills will assist our youth and develop a culture of learning.

    The greatest social change factor in the world right now could be fathers and their role in family and society.

    Can we trade without money? : Lets Talk Possibility Episode 64

    Can we create an alternate economy, where we trade in 'heart currency' rather than 'greed currency'? We look at the award winning "Cafe 1145" as a case study, because Lynne Glauber, with Richard Thomson's help, revamped and redecorated the place by bartering only. And we ask Dawn Pilatowicz, board member of the CES.org.za (Community Exchange System), a worldwide trading platform where people trade goods and services for other people's goods and services, about how this currency system of "talents" is facilitating trading without cash.
