According to the plan, South Africa can realise these goals by drawing on the energies of its people, growing an inclusive economy, building capabilities, enhancing the capacity of the state, and promoting leadership and partnerships throughout society.

Moving Forward Intercultural Learning can be a key support to the delivery of these Moving Forward Intercultural Learning can be a key support to the delivery of these priorities. To do this, intercultural learning opportunities should be more widely available: – More opportunities for structured intercultural learning opportunities (e. g. exchanges – international, internal, virtual) with planned and supported learning schemes. – “Learning to Live Together” or “Global Citizenship” to be a part of the Life Orientation curriculum. – Lessons learned should be used to actively promote active citizenship and social entrepreneurship. To deliver this will require, in the words of the NDP, the promotion of leadership and partnerships throughout society.
