Africa-UK Connections in Practice - New Approaches for 2015  on Saturday January 10th at Impact Hub Westminster.

This promises to be a positive and inspiring way to start the year. Our keynote speaker is Professor Tim Unwin - Secretary General of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation. Our "reality check" will be led by John Dada of Fantsuam Foundation.

Our theme is that  UK-Africa collaborations are changing. Now that we live in a connected world, traditional top-down ways of doing things are outdated. Effective two-way communication at a distance is increasingly possible, and that can mean collaborative problem solving.

Looking at international development from an empowerment perspective, we are going to consider how successful collaborative projects linking UK and English-speaking, sub-Saharan Africa can grow and be replicated.

This will be a very participative event with a clear focus, tightly tied into reality and with an action plan agenda afterwards for anyone interested in involvement.

  • Come to listen
  • Come to share your experience
  • Stay to get involved in the next steps at "After-Event" 3.30-5.00pm (main event 10.30-3.30)

Arranged for Dadamac Foundation, in association with Fantsuam Foundation, the RSA UK-Africa Network, and GlobalNet21.
