About the conference
The African Society of Cambridge University (ASCU) is pleased to announce the sixth annual ‘Africa Together’ conference, which will be held on Saturday, the 1st June 2019.
The theme for this year’s edition of the conference is “Which Way Forward? Africa and The Global Agenda for Sustainable Development”. The Conference proposes to minimise the rhetoric and to showcase the concrete ways in which African policy makers, business leaders, innovators, young people have responded to the call for sustainable action. The Conference will also confront complacent assumptions about Africa’s inability to meet the welfare aspirations of its citizens by showing how partnerships, science and technology, creative and innovative solutions as well as a willingness to engage women and other underrepresented groups are being leveraged all over the continent for real and measurable sustainable growth.
