Warwick Africa Summit
Event from Africa Summit
Saturday 25 January 2020, 10am - 5pm
Oculus building, university of Warwick
The Warwick Africa Summit is an interdisciplinary conference focussed on African development and, solely organized by students. The summit presents a platform to address the different difficulties faced by the continent through the multi-disciplinary keynote speeches and panels of Human and Economic Development, Innovation, Governance, and, Culture and History. Our speakers range from politicians, bankers, entrepreneurs, activists to philanthropists who have dedicated their lives to unlocking the continent’s true potential. 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 theme for this year is Umoja Ni Nguvu, which translates to 'Unity is strength' It is our belief that with Connected challenges come Connected solutions. This is consistent with historical Pan-African thought, that the continent's prosperity and development are dependent on the coming-together of its people. Our aim is to spark new dialogues and change the narratives that have been thus far associated with Africa.
For the wealth of knowledge that will be present at the summit, we hope that all our attendees feel inspired and find a renewed sense of optimism as to what can be achieved in the future, and find clarity on how to take those next steps forward. We look forward to having you on the 25th and 26th of January 2020. Tickets out now!
