Warwick Africa Summit release tickets ahead of 2023 conference

Warwick Africa Summit (WAS) have released tickets ahead of its seventh annual summit.

The summit will be held on February 25 and February 26 2023.

Tickets to the in-person and online summit include keynote speeches and panel discussions, networking sessions with speakers, summit merchandise, access to discount codes to Black-Owned businesses, and an African lunch.

WAS is a two-day student-organised interdisciplinary conference that draws in speakers to discuss African development. Students at Warwick can engage with academics and practitioners in conversations about the issues faced by the African continent.

The theme of this year’s summit is “Elfu Huanzia Na Moja”, a Swahili saying that translates to “A Thousand Begins with One” highlighting the value and power each individual has on the continent.

We are inspiring hundreds of young minds to be the next generation of leaders and real catalysts of change

– Mariam Dunseath, WAS President

The WAS team said: “The saying hopes to promote people to rise above stereotypes and stigmas, take risks, and embrace positive change within the African continent”.

The summit also includes panel sessions which will be one hour discussions consisting of 5-6 speakers per panel that provide different perspectives under their respective panel themes. This is followed by “breakout sessions”, which are 60 minutes long.

ADEFHO President and Human Rights Defender, Alice A. Nkom, and Founder of EcoChampion, Temilade Salami, will both speak. Photographer and visual artist featured in Vogue, Stephan Tayo, will also give a speech.

WAS President, Mariam Dunseath, in a statement welcoming attendees, said: “It is with utmost delight to welcome you to the Warwick Africa Summit 2023

“After two years of virtual successful summits, I am excited to host you for the return of our in-person summit at the University of Warwick!

“WAS is a fulfilling experience, as not only are we actively shifting the narrative surrounding Africa, but we are inspiring hundreds of young minds to be the next generation of leaders and real catalysts of change”.
