For UJ, #Feesmustfall is not over just yet. Throughout the protests, UJ was listening. They heard what the students had to say. And have launched the #UJBeTheSolution initiative so that they can be the voice.
UJ Be The Solution embodies a collective solution that we as South Africans can be part of.
#UJBeTheSolution asks: How do we ensure that we are all part of a solution?
“This question is posed to staff, students and UJ communities. It is a promise from UJ; we are united in our efforts to create a better tomorrow.”
“It’s a call for initiatives that generate solutions where there are currently none.”
“It’s a rallying plea, to join the positive conversation. We want tangible solutions rather than problems.”
They will be sharing the UJ Solution stories in the Sunday Times, Mail and Guardian and the Sowetan newspapers.They have approached have engaged radio stations various bloggers to drive the positive solution-based conversation.
