Africa Together Conference

Sat 21 May 2022

Møller Institute

The African Society of Cambridge University (ASCU) has announced the 8th annual Africa Together Conference at the University of Cambridge. This year’s edition themed ‘Africa’s Reemergence: Taking Back Control’, pledges to pick up with great vigour where the previous edition had let off, especially since the conference could not be held for two years during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 2022 Africa Together Conference is scheduled for the 21st of May at Churchill College’ Møller Institute, University of Cambridge. It promises to assemble Africa’s sharpest and most influential minds, including students, young professionals, academics, policy experts, diplomats, industry professionals and business leaders, to discuss the place of Africa’s vibrant youths in innovating a sustainable future in a post-pandemic world.

Since its first edition in 2014, the Africa Together Conference has blossomed into the premier student-led conference on Africa at the University of Cambridge. Former participants have included Heads of State, government ministers, foreign secretaries, CEOs, governors of central banks, and WTO and UN representatives drawn from all regions of the African Union. It has platformed speakers such as Professor Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, Former President of the Republic of Mauri?us; Professor Mthuli Ncube, Minister of Finance of Zimbabwe and Former Chief Economist and Vice President of the African Development
Bank; Sir David King, the UK Foreign Secretary’s Permanent Special Representative for Climate Change; and Ms Bience-Gawanas, Under-Secretary-General and Special Adviser on Africa to the United Nations Secretary-General, among others.

This year's list of keynote speakers features celebrated personalities such as Prof. PLO Lumumba, Former Director of the Kenya Anti-Corrup?on Commission; H. E Arikana Chihombori-Quao MD, former African Union Ambassador to the US; Eugene Nizeyimana, CEO and Director at African Business Chamber (AfBC) and Director of One Africa Network (OAN), Rosalind Kainyah MBE Founder & Managing Director, Kina Advisory Ltd and Professor Graham Virgo, Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, the University of Cambridge (Opening Adress). They will be accompanied by more than ten panellists across three panels that will address ‘Leadership, Business and Innovations'.
