The overall aim of this conference and the work of its commissions were to look at how we can take Madiba’s vision for youth, sport and peace forward in 2019 and beyond. Nelson Mandela’s legacy and the role he played for Youth, Sport, and Peace in the world. He believed in the power of sport, the important role of women and the youth as leaders of tomorrow. “Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great, he said, you can be that great Generation. Let your Greatness blossom.“ In keeping with Madiba’s unswerving internationalism, this year’s conference was held in conjunction with the International Peace Research Association (IPRA), and its continental affiliate, the Africa Peace Education and Research Association (AFPREA)
