A total of 130 representatives came together – some virtually and others in person – to participate in the first regional FutureLife-Now! Sharing Meeting of 2022.

The successful hybrid meeting took place in Cape Town from 15 to18 February and attendees included 74 government officials from 14 of the 16 SADC Member States, as well as representatives from the SADC Secretariat, the Swiss Agency for Co-operation and Development, MIET AFRICA and various development partners.

The meeting provided the SADC Member States with updates on FutureLife-Now! activities, the ESA Commitment evaluation and recommitment process, status of CSTL mainstreaming and the #1 Million Ubuntu Youth Leaders Movement.

The importance of child and youth agency for sustainable development and how to develop it, the value of technology in education, and the urgency of addressing climate change through education, were key areas of focus.

Presentations we made by core programme partners including SADC, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNICEF, SAfAIDS, Member States and MIET AFRICA, as well as several other NGOs.

The meeting was chaired by Maureen Maguza-Tembo, Deputy Director: School Health & Nutrition, Malawi. Participants keenly followed presentations and engagement by virtual participants via the Zoom chat facility was robust.

CSTL Technical Committee Meeting and FutureLife-Now! Sharing Meeting presentations are available for download on the MIET AFRICA website here and on CSTL PULSE.
