Friday Balcao the fortnightly discussion event to be held on 12th July will focus on the lessons from the Mandela Day initiative. The discussion is being held to prepare for the Nelson Mandela International Day. The Mandela Day observed from 2009 is an occasion for all to "Take Action and Inspire Change". The activities undertaken on this day are meant to encourage people to make a difference in their communities. The big idea being, everyone has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better.

What lessons can be learnt from the Mandela Day initiative ? How can social work bring about social change ? Has the time to 'agonize' ended and the time to 'organize' begun ? What efforts can educational institutions take to encourage students to do social work ? How can a movement of 'volunteers for social change' be initiated ? What can consumer forums, SHGs, women's groups, NSS, faith based groups and trade unions do to focus on social change ? These are some of the questions that will be covered in the discussion.

Friday Balcao will be from 4pm to 6pm at the Goa Desc Resource Centre No.11 Liberty Apts, Feira Alta, Mapusa and is open to members of the public.
