Carolyn Steyn, actress, TV personality and founder of the 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day Campaign, will be speaking at a just added Plenary Session on Monday, 17 August.

67 Blankets campaignThe 67 Blankets campaign, which has gained widespread support and broke the Guinness World Record for Largest Crochet Blanket, is a registered non-profit organisation that invites people to knit and crochet blankets that are gifted to people in need. It has succeeded in attracting people of all ages from all walks of life and institutions, including schools, banks, old age homes, national sports teams, etc. and is endorsed by the Nelson Mandela Foundation. It is widely upheld as a social cohesion project. Most recently the Department of Correctional Services has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with 67 Blankets, which has already seen the rehabilitating impact on prisoners who are a part of the initiative.

The Plenary Session will be held on Monday, 17 August, from 08.30-09.15 in Exhibition Hall 2.
