In Conversation with City Year South Africa Leaders
Moderator Mary Jordan from the Washington Post joins speakers Portia Myaba-Seatlholo, Simangele “Smash” Shoyisa and Lindiwe Sibiya to discuss their work with the organization City Year South Africa.
This conversation was held as part of the first global symposium on Overcoming Isolation and Deepening Social Connectedness held from Oct 1 - 3, 2014 in Toronto.
Social isolation significantly impacts individual and community health, well-being, livelihoods, and resilience, and yet few programmes and policies currently address this issue directly.
We thank the Samuel Family Foundation, the Synergos Institute and TakingITGlobal for organizing the first symposium on Overcoming Isolation and Deepening Social Connectedness in October 2014.
