Boma of Africa Festival – Africa Future Scenarios

Webinar – By registration

Our Senior Fellow, Dr. Kidane Kiros, will be representing the Policy Center for the New South as guest speaker during the Boma of Africa Festival, organized by the AfroChampions and the African Union. Dr. Kiros will be speaking during the Africa Future Scenarios session, held on July 4th at 13:30 (EAT), in which two African universities - Ashesi University and African Leadership University - shall provide alternative simulations of how Africa will look like in 2063 (the AU's grand timeline for continental transformation) based on each university having a different stance on 4 different assumptions:
2030 - Common Currency (Yes/No)
2040 - Standing Army (Yes/No)
2050 - Common Language (Yes/No)
2060 - Common President + Parliament (Yes/No)
The stances of the futurists will be captured on a 15-minute pre-recorded video accompanied by PowerPoint slides. These videos will be viewed by a live audience, after which there will be series of conversations among futurists, invited panelists and the live audience.
