Africa Summit

Warwick Africa Summit

Africa Summit

The Warwick Africa Summit is a student-organised and led interdisciplinary conference focused on the development of the African continent. 

The summit presents a platform for all to address the different challenges faced by the continent through the multi-disciplinary keynote speeches and panels. Our speakers range from politicians, bankers, entrepreneurs and activists to philanthropists who have dedicated their lives to unlocking the continent’s true potential. Speakers in past events have included Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President of Nigeria, Nigerian singer songwriter Mr Eazi, Aliko Dangote and Isabelle De Santos respectively the richest man and woman in Africa, and Amina Muhammed (Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations).

We aim to generate engagement, innovation, and collaboration between students, academics, and practitioners as well as raise awareness of a continent, which is not always understood.

Our chosen theme for the 2024 Summit is “Umuntu Ngumuntu Ngabantu”, a Zulu maxim translating to "I am because you are". At its core, this theme celebrates the essence of partnership and collaboration, a philosophy that threads together the tapestry of Africa and her people. “I am because you are” is more than a phrase; it is a call for equity, peace, and harmony, acknowledging the sanctity of every life regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.

We're looking forward to this upcoming year, as we plan to collaborate with your favourite societies and host several engaging events leading up to our Summit in Term 2!
