Annually the World Economic forum hosts WEF on Africa with Cape Town being the host every 2nd year. With WEF on Africa 2013 being hosted in Cape Town, the RLabs team were privileged to host some of the worlds game-changers and ground breakers in our space, giving them a much deeper insight into Cape Town and the Cape Flats.
Upon Arrival, the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers, Young Global Leaders and Global Leadership Fellows were each welcomed by an RLabs Culture tour, followed by a presentation of the RLabs journey. On the RLabs Culture tour, the WEF group were taken into the local community, learning and experiencing a community in tension. After hearing and experiencing the RLabs journey, the group were then introduced to a panel of RLabs champions folowed by an interactive Q and A session.
Following the RLabs learning journey, this is what one of South Africa’s remarkable woman had to say:
It was very good being with all of you. It is great to know that there are people who do such great work as you do” – Yvonne Chaka Chaka
