It is most likely that the new generation will be known as Alpha. How will the world remember them? With support from the Government of Flanders, NATi and the Kingdom of the Netherlands a creative team of South African and international artists explore these questions with South African teens. What new inventions can we expect from them?

716

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”.

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

322
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

297
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.
