Her Excellency Naledi Pandor, South Africa's Minister of Science and Technology, highlights the need to ensure that the most marginalised – poor, rural, females – are receiving adequate access to education. She explores the link between the education offered to young people and the post-schooling opportunities they are able to access. The key message from the Minister, who is also a juror of the WISE Prize, is the importance of promoting innovation: teaching students how to respond and adapt to a constantly changing world.
