Dear professionals and the youth of South Africa

Your country needs you! You may not be interested in politics, but politics have a profound impact on your life. Your current priorities may prove futile if South Africa becomes a failed state; it’s akin to focusing on cabin upgrade while the Titanic is sinking. The country faces significant systemic issues, and it often appears that the most skilled citizens have relinquished the responsibility of managing the nation to those least equipped for the task.

However, we understand that engaging in South African politics can be challenging. Apart from contending with career politicians who act as gatekeepers, your other pressing priorities may prevent you from being at the forefront of the next shutdown.

CITIZANS is a platform focused on enabling professionals and the youth of South Africa to play a role in building a better  society for current and future generations.

We enable you to contribute by leveraging your skills and getting your input into new laws and policy proposals for a better South Africa. There is no membership required; and the platform is accessible online.

Let’s build a better society for present and future generations.

The role we play

We synthesise collective input into well-researched policy proposals for a better South Africa. We then pursue all available avenues to effect change, including community level activism, lobbying, and court challenges where necessary.

Matters of Priority
for the country

We have identified what we consider to be the 7 foremost priorities for South Africa. To kickstart the process, we have crafted what we believe are unique and innovative proposals under each priority, and we are keen to hear your views and input to enrich them further.

We call them SA Priorities for Prosperity 2035.
