The Green Imbizo is a solutions space, where great ideas and solutions are championed in the quest to build an inclusive economy in South Africa. It’s a space where game-changing ideas are ignited and most difficult questions of the day facing society are tackled.
Imbizo is a Nguni word, which means a ‘gathering’. In African culture gatherings are an integral part of building harmony, conflict resolution and for celebrating victories. In the same spirit the Green Imbizo will provide a space for storytelling to celebrate our successes in tackling systemic challenges such as poverty and climate change.
The Imbizo will feature inspiring thought leaders, entrepreneurs and activists who are at the forefront of advancing the transition to a green economy in South Africa and the continent. During these intimate sessions, these inspirational leaders will share the stories of their journey, their motivations and challenges encountered in their journey to build a better society.
