Freedom in a fractured world: Sustaining the legacy of Nelson Mandela

Book now

Wednesday 5 September
8.45am - 4.15pm
The Stripe Auditorium, King Alfred Quarter, University of Winchester, Sparkford Road, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 4NR

Our international reputation for values-led teaching and research has led the University of Winchester to collaborate with the Nelson Mandela Museum in Qunu, South Africa. Emerging out of this association the University of Winchester is hosting a major conference commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. This conference forms part of a quartet of major events taking place in the USA, Kenya and South Africa as part of these celebrations.

We will consider how Mandela’s commitment to and understanding of freedom might help us to navigate our way through our current challenging times. This event will bring together professionals from many social organisations, including schools, to consider Mandela’s values and their significance for our and future generations.

"For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."
Nelson Mandela Long Walk to Freedom
