World Choir Games in Tshwane

World Choir Games in Tshwane

The World Choir Games take place in Pretoria from 4 to 14 July. The 'Voices of the World' gather to sing in the world's largest choir celebration. Bearing songs and a dazzling display of cultural diversity, each of the choirs offer their vocal best in this keenly fought contest. But besides competition, the World Choir Games are all about harmony, respect, unity and most of all global friendship.

Two choirs from Flanders will be participating in the World Choir Games. Make sure not to miss Show Choir Rise Up from Neerpelt and Youth Choir Waelrant from Borgerhout.

Show Choir Rise Up is the first of two Flemish choirs competing in the World Choir Games taking place in Pretoria. This girls choir was founded in 2006 and hails from Neerpelt, Belgium.

Catch one or all of their performances on the following dates:
July 5: Competition Category O24 "Show Choirs/Scenic Pop" at the State Theatre Opera House at 19:30.
July 6: Competition Category O11 "Female Choirs" at the Musaion, University of Pretora at 15.30.

Flemish Youth Choir Waelrant takes part in the second week of the 2018 World Choir Games. They compete in the Mixed Youth Choirs Category on Wednesday 11 July in the Desmond Abernethy Hall, Pretoria Boys High, at 19.30.
If you miss that performance, you can still catch them competing in the Musica Sacra a capella Category at St Albans Cathedral on 12 July at 10.30, or at the Celebration Concert taking place at 19.00 that day at the NG Universiteitsoord in Duxbury Road.

Call for Proposals: Strengthening the health system in Mozambique so that no adolescent will be left behind

Concurso público: Fortalecer o Sistema de Saúde de Moçambique para que nenhum adolescente fique para trás

624

The Government of Flanders has a long-standing relationship with the Government of Mozambique. The Country Strategy Paper III (CSP III) 2016-2020, which is the product of a joint consultation process between the two Governments, states as its common mission “to promote the fundamental right to the highest attainable standard of health for the entire Mozambican population in general, and of its adolescent population more specifically, as part of a strategy to reduce absolute poverty in the country.”


O Governo da Flandres e de Moçambique cooperam estreitamente desde o ano de 2002. O Documento de Estratégia para o Pais (DEP) 2016-2020 entre o Governo da Flandres e o Governo de Moçambique estabelece a missão comum de “reforçar e promover o direito fundamental de acesso ao mais elevado padrão de saúde para toda a população de Moçambique, em geral, e mais especificamente para a sua população adolescente, como parte de uma estratégia de redução da pobreza absoluta no Pais”. 


Support for Mozambique and Malawi after deadly cyclone

155
Minister-president Geert Bourgeois and Minister Koen Van den Heuvel express their condolences to the victims in the Flemish partner countries Mozambique and Malawi after the devastating passage of cyclone Idai and make 250,000 euros immediately aviable for emergency aid. The contribution is primarily for meeting the most urgent needs, but also for supporting the climate-related disaster preparedness of the region.

Rule of Three premieres at The Market Theatre on 16 March

298
In Rule of Three, Flemish choreographer Jan Martens blends storytelling with live music to create a night-club vibe combined with the feeling of getting lost in the pages of a book. The result is a stunning dance piece that is loud, bright and brilliant. Rule of Three is the first performance of the Flemish dance season that hits South African stages from March to June 2019. GRIP, les ballets C de la B, and Siamese Cie, three of Flanders’ leading dance companies, showcase their work at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg, KKNK Oudtshoorn and the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town.

National Consultation Conference on Social Economy

261
On 27 and 28 February the Economic Development Department, with support of the International Labour Organization, the Industrial Development Corporation and the Government of Flanders, organised the first Social Economy National Consultation Conference. The conference served as a launching pad for a broad consultation process to obtain input for the Social Economy Policy Green Paper which will be taken to the provinces during the course of the year. The conference was well attended with over 200 social economy practitioners, supporters, academia and government officials participating in discussions on topics such as definition, measuring the social economy, financing, regulatory frameworks and the future of work. The conference was hosted by Minister Ebrahim Patel, and attended by Minister Lindiwe Zulu, Deputy Minister of Public Works, Jeremy Cronin and the Director General of the ILO, Guy Ryder.
