The Centre for Development Support (CDS) is a progressive research unit at the University of the Free State (UFS). The centre is also seen as a training unit promoting sustainable human development. To prove this, the CDS recently presented a seminar series with the Khanya African Institute for Community-Driven Development.

The seminar was titled “Of paradoxes and job creation: Exploring alternative solutions”. Many aspects were looked at and Dr Daan Toerien, former Vice-President of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), presented the seminar.

According to Prof. Lochner Marais, director of the CDS, the seminar series looked into the various conflicts between technology, job creation and local economic development planning. Everyone who attended the seminar would agree that the frontiers of knowledge were undoubtedly challenged. -Lize du Plessis
