Sofia participated in this event…
I know you haven’t heard from us in a while and I have gotten numerous individual messages wondering what’s happening with the group.
Well, we are still ALIVE AND KICKING!!!!!
Since that event and following the positive feedback we got from attendees, we have been trying to put modalities in place so we can continue to run the events sustainably but also so we can create a proper framework for us to be more than a talk-shop, but an active practical player in Africa’s development.
To this end, we now have an extended team of 7 people all working on the project now. The extended team met to work out our strategy for moving forward on Tuesday 3rd of July and will keep you updated as we progress.
We have also gotten a number of invites to partner with existing organisations working on development of the continent.
All in all, things are looking good and we will be sending details for the next New Ideas for Africa session in London as well as plans for a picnic in August.
We have also gotten requests from different people who want to run similar sessions in their own cities outside London. We are trying to put together a format on how this will operate and will send through once we have it. If you would also like to host the conversations in your city, let us know.
Take care and keen to see more activity on the group.
