From the 19th till 21st November 2014, we gathered in Accra, Ghana to make personal commitments for 2015.
Participants came from all over the world, including Ghana, Cameroun, Nigeria, South Africa, Guinea, UK, Sierra Leone, Kenya, Spain, Ethiopia, Mauritius to name a few, and we were inspired to see so many friends of Africa and emerging African leaders together in one room, working collaboratively across sectors and nationalities.
The numbers speak for themselves:
We focused on execution, with workshops and breakout sessions where participants made commitments to action in 2015. We had workshops, breakout sessions and many inspiring speakers, including surprise guests such as HE Olusegun Obasanjo, HE Jerry Rawlings and Minister Anatole CollinetMakosso of Congo. However the stars of the show were the many members of the Africa 2.0 community who shared their stories of passion, perseverance and focus. Meeting at a time when much of West Africa was being ostracized due to the Ebola outbreak. Despite the challenges faced, this conference was an example of what is possible when we come together around a common purpose: to push forward the transformation of Africa. For Africa, by Africans.
