Building Sustainable Inclusion
Building Sustainable Inclusion: From intersecting inequalities to accountable relationships
- Enable safe and inclusive spaces for engagement with SLF as an intermediary – for dialogue between governance bodies / officials and ordinary South African citizens (Delft residents).
- Demonstrate the participatory and inclusive nature of the project process and the value of participatory methods for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) implementation; in particular SDGs 8, 11 and 16.
- Highlight the importance of addressing intersecting inequalities through the use of powerful visual medium produced in our previous PMA work (see SLF Vimeo links below).
- Utilise the media as a tool to place pressure on those who are accountable to citizens by keeping them in the spotlight – for example, through the #DelftLivesMatter campaign launched during a project national event at UCT in December 2016.
- Two policy engagement dialogue events hosted between December 2016 (first national event) and March (first international hosting) 2017. SLF and the DSG aim to host another high level discussion between citizens and duty bearers from various levels of the South African government before the close of 2017.
