About this event

The Future is Africa -Exploring the future of us all. 1 Day Conference

Our past and our future is in Africa, the young people of the world are in Africa

There is a large educated population in Africa, much of the worlds true natural wealth is in Africa and sustainable development has been live in Africa for years. Climate Impacts were felt amongst the first there- the issues of global warming, health and agricultural issues droughts, crop failure.

But many of the worlds scientific inventions have historically come from the continent and

even mathematics continues to be dominated by African talent. It was African American women who calculated how to get people onto the moon even if hidden figures, the foundation of London is reported to have been by an African Roman- so much of life is actually African and so we explore how Africa can take its place in the world and be more conscious of its huge advantages and stop the terrible exploitation of its people and its resources. The event will explore all of these factors, the developments in vacine science, the history that has been stolen from Africa and rewritten. The impacts of climate change, biodiversity loss and historical ways of organisation of society and the learnings from that.

The relationship of the European Union and the implications for policy. The Implementation of the Green Deal particularly in Africa. The vastly ambitious Green Wall Sahara Project- for replacing the greenery which was once in the Sahara. The biodiversity implications and President Macrons projects from France. The role of the African Development Bank. The role of academics today working in Africa. The particular role of the SDGs and the role of aid and its characteristics for the 21st century. These and many other topics will be explored.
