The Warwick Africa Summit is a student-organised interdisciplinary conference focused on African development. The summit presents a platform to address the different difficulties faced by the continent through the multi-disciplinary keynote speeches and panels of Human and Economic Development, Innovation, Governance, and Culture and History. Our speakers range from politicians, bankers, entrepreneurs and activists to philanthropists who have dedicated their lives to unlocking the continent’s true potential.
We aim to generate engagement, innovation, and collaboration between students, academics, and practitioners as well as raise awareness of a continent, which is not always understood.
In order to adapt to our current climate, this year’s summit will be held online but will be just as interactive and engaging!
WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT
Warwick Africa Summit 2022 aims to address the potential that African nations can unlock once united to generate ideas and initiatives that can promote the continent's journey towards excellence and collective prosperity.
One of the most rewarding aspects that comes with organising a summit of this nature, is providing the hundreds of young attendees with the opportunity to meet and network with their heroes, the individual they aspire to emulate in the future. Whether that may be in music, finance, art, development work, academia, politics, or any other imaginable field that contributes to the prosperity of Africa, the possibilities are infinite. We truly appreciate your time and effort, and thus, during the summit, my team and I will endeavour to make your experience with us as welcoming and pleasant as possible.
Without you, the summit would not be a success, so please allow me to extend my sincere thanks, on behalf of my team, sponsors, board of advisors and the University of Warwick.
