2020 VISION

 

The 20/20 Vision for the Desmond Tutu Centre for Leadership, commonly known as C4L, is to become a "think tank".

C4L has always been a nonprofit organization located at White River in Mpumalanga Province, South Africa. 

Its ten-year strategic plan adopted in 2010 mandated some downsizing and streamlining, which has been concluded in 2019.

Its 20/20 Vision has two key institutional role-models:

1. FINKENWALDE was the on-the-run training facility established by Dietrich Bonhoeffer for the Confessing Church (in Germany) almost a century ago

2. CARDUS is a Canadian think tank that puts more emphasis that C4L will on research, and less emphasis than C4L will on advocacy. 

The thing is that "public engagement" can be seen as negative at times, and positive at times, but it is always supportive in its own way.  This has more to do with the context that with the think tank.

"Speaking truth to power" can annoy the authorities at times, and guide them at other times.  Either way, the "prophetic role" remains part of church leadership along with pastoring, teaching, evangelism and organizing.
