​​FVZS Discourse Series.png

The FVZS Institute's Discourse Series (usually offered during the annual SU Woordfees and throughout the year) forms part of our Critical Engagement portfolio and invites prominent local and international intergenerational thought leaders to interact with our students and members of the public in an informal and engaging setting.

Through storytelling, these thought leaders, representative of a variety of fields and backgrounds share their personal leadership development journey and through panel discussions share contrasting viewpoints with others. The topics of discussion are normally linked to the profile of the invited guests, the launch of new books, or current student leadership issues in Higher Education.

Through this discourse series, the FVZS Institute exposes youth leaders and other invited guests to inter-generational conversations linked to contextual issues, challenges, and opportunities and serves as a catalyst for further conversation both on and off-campus.
