Happy Tuesday, everyone! Keep on learning online, even if you cannot attend in-person workshops and sessions this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Below, we list today’s opportunities to learn about socio-economic rights and record-keeping systems. Also, registrations have opened for the virtual Wine Harvest commemorative event.


Record-keeping for beginners 

The Center for Arkansas Farms and Food invites farmers for an online workshop on “record-keeping systems: production and business.” There might be differences in the way South Africans farm, but the US is widely known for its innovative record-keeping systems needed to grow your farming enterprise.

Visit the website to view this class and see other upcoming workshops.

2Socio-economic rights at national level

The Dullah Omar Institute (DOI) is hosting a webinar on the effective implementation of socio-economic rights at a national level. The institute works in five areas, namely children’s rights, socio-economic rights, multi-level government, criminal justice reform and women’s rights.

The DOI issued observations and recommendations to the South African government in a 2018 report that addressed the need to accelerate “economic transformation”, expedite wealth redistribution and eliminate inequality. This webinar aims to see how the country has used this report in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and to establish further opportunities for engagement.
