About Youth Day

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Youth Day in South Africa commemorates the soweto uprising of June 16, 1976. The day is celebrated on June 16 every year. The day is celebrated in order to recognize the role of youth in the liberation of South Africa from the Apartheid regime.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”About #KnowYourHeritage” tab_id=”5f720701-b677-4″][vc_column_text]

Heritage is what is preserved from the past as the living collective memory of a people not only to inform the present about the past but also to equip successive generations to fashion their future. It is what creates a sense of identity and assures rootedness and continuity, so that what is brought out by dynamism of culture is not changed for its own sake, but it is a result of people’s conscious choice to create a better life.

 

The National Heritage Council is on a quest to know what ordinary South Africans have to say about their heritage. Watch as we speak to people on the streets from different backgrounds and dig deeper into the knowledge of our heritage.
