ON 4 May 2017, the NRF Chair of African Diplomacy and Foreign Policy and the UJ Library, in partnership with Penguin Random House, hosted a discussion with Jay Naidoo, author of Change: Organising Tomorrow, Today.
In this book, Naidoo harnesses his experience as a labour union organiser, government minister,social entrepreneur and global thought leader, and explored ways of solving some of the world’s biggest problems. Drawing on his experiences in South Africa, Nigeria, Brazil, Bangladesh and other countries, he presents a variety of options for ending poverty and global warming, with a focus on organising in our communities and building change from below and beyond borders.
The backtext states: ‘Naidoo’s message is unequivocal: significant action must be taken immediately if we want future generations to live in a world that we take for granted today.’
