the conference’s theme of: “Sustainable Solutions, Responding to the
Challenges of Food Security, Water Scarcity, Insufficient Electricity
Supply and Women Empowerment”.
Sidzamba delivered a presentation highlighting how the involvement of
students in community development projects or issues will improve the
University’s Teaching and Learning process.

comprehension which is offered by actively engaging in communal
affairs,’ said Sidzimba.

which got an opportunity to engage with city officials of Sundsvall
Municipality in Sweden and to share ideas on how South Africa could be
instrumental in the promotion of the Global Business Week event and on
possible ways of enhancing it.
