What is IACESA’s Vision?

IACESA’s vision is to make an influential contribution to the development and support of a diverse Southern African community of successful and responsible ‘conceptual age’ thinkers.

Successful and responsible thinkers learn independently, have the ‘kind of minds’ and abilities to design their own future, flourish in ever-changing circumstances and make creative contributions to the quality and democratic functioning of their contexts.


IACESA’s vision and mission will be achieved inter alia by:

  • Close collaboration with The Cognitive Education Research Group at NWU.
  • Cog-Ed Seminars
  • News Updates
  • Conferences
  • IACESA website
  • Publications (articles, books, pamphlets, etc)
  • Support for regional interest groups
  • Networking and collaboration with relevant institutions or organizations
