Win free tickets to the Harvard Africa Business Conference!
Movemeback is donating 10 tickets for Harvard’s Africa Business Conference to young people who want to be involved in the shaping Africa’s future.
The average age of Africa’s ten eldest leaders is over 80 (total average ~63, eldest ~90). The average age of people living in Africa is ~19. The gap is ~+40 years (more years than I’ve been alive). It’s not inspiring, not conducive, not sustainable and not justifiable! Our Continent needs a younger cohort of cross-gender and generational leaders who are closer to the hopes, needs, fears, motivations and realities of the core population who will ultimately build our nations over the next 30-40 years.
If we want to see a change by 2040 we have to start today; we’re already behind. I personally believe it is paramount to actively encourage the future generation to engage-with and lead conversations pertaining to development, Pan-Africanism, security, foreign / internal policy and of course nation-building, health, nutrition and work. Irrespective of political views, we’re looking for the Nkrumahs, Selassies, Mandelas and Sankaras of our generation!
For young people, we see no better place for cross-nation, industry-wide, and multi-disciplinary thought-exchange and inspiration than at the Harvard Business School’s HBS Africa Business Club annual Africa Business Conference taking place on March 24th. For that reason we wanted to lead intentionally and donate 10 tickets (worth $160 each) to young people who would otherwise not be able to attend. I am also donating 100 copies of Nkrumah’s “Africa Must Unite” book to anyone who wants to read.
