UJ student’s farming project clinches top spot at 2019 Student Leadership Summit
Johannesburg, 21 October 2019: The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a framework for the changes the world needs to make to solve poverty, world hunger, poor health, the lack of quality education, climate change, gender inequality, environmental issues, and more. That’s why this year’s South African Institute of Chartered Accountants’ (SAICA’s) annual Student Leadership Summit (SLS) challenged BCom CA-stream accounting students from around the country to think bigger. To enter, students had to come up with community-based solutions for one or more of the goals. Earlier this month, University of Johannesburg’s (UJ’s) Bonginkosi Kalipa’s Team3 Farm project won top honours.
