The University of Nottingham will host its inaugural Africa Summit on Friday 16 June 2017. The Summit will provide a platform to advance communication on the economic wealth of Africa with investors, students, graduates and top government officials expected to attend and contribute to the discussion.

The Summit will be opened by  His Excellency Atiku Abubakar (The Ex-Vice President of Nigeria) with a lecture on the theme: ‘Where is Africa Going?’

  • Dr. Boly Barry, Former Minister of Education for Burkina Faso and UN Special Rapporteur on the right to education.

We would like to invite you to join us from 08:45am to 16:30 on the 16 June 2017 at University Park Campus, Nottingham.  

Topics for discussion will focus on the ‘High Fives’ of the African Development Bank which are:

  • Power and Light up Africa
  • Integrate Africa
  • Industrialise Africa
  • Feed Africa
  • Improve the quality of life of Africans.

The purpose of the summit is not to talk about the natural resources in Africa, which we have heard about for too long, but to discuss and debate practical steps needed for Africa and Africans to harvest this potential. The structure of the summit will be a launch by a keynote speaker and then panel discussions of each topic.
