The organizers of the largest TEDx event in Ghana announces a brand new thought-leadership event, ‘Africa Dialogues’.
Africa Dialogues focuses on issues relevant to Africa’s achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and ECOWAS’ Agenda 2063.
Themed ‘Dreams We Dare Not’, the 2017 inaugural Africa Dialogues event will feature talks on governance and human rights, education, youth unemployment, infrastructure, technology, public health, gender, income inequality, African economies, and urban development.
The event will congregate policy makers, innovative business leaders, accomplished academics, civil society leaders and distinguished individuals from Africa, to dialogue on Africa’s future.
Describing the aspirations of the new event, Emmanuel Leslie Addae, Curator of TEDxAccra, said: “The Africa Dialogues platform endeavors to move beyond raising awareness about the challenges facing Africa by highlighting innovative thinking and promoting those working to positively impact Africa. It’s about the Africa we all want to see hence our tagline, ‘The Africa we Want’.”
Mr Addae added: “We hope conference attendees will leave with a sense of excitement and purpose regarding the continent and its role in the world. Importantly, in the spirit of this year’s theme, DREAMS WE DARE NOT, we expect anyone who watches Africa Dialogues to discover new opportunities and inspiration to dream big and drive Africa’s future. Watch out for upcoming events in other African cities.”
Providing further information about the maiden event, Head of Communications and External Relations at TEDxAccra Cynthia Ofori-Dwumfuo said the event will be held at the Accra International Conference Center on June 3, 2017, from 9 am to 3 pm with participants drawn from across Africa and Ghana.
She further stated, “Africa Dialogues is a unique, first-of-its-kind event worth supporting. I call on corporations and non-governmental organizations interested in the progress of Africa, to support this venture.”
