About us

Africa Together Conference is organised by a committee representing various Africa-focused student societies across the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University. Now in its fifth year, “Africa Together” has grown into a leading platform that convenes some of Africa’s best minds, policy-makers, business people, scholars, students, and young professionals representing the diversity of the continent to construct/deconstruct narratives about our individual and collective lived experiences, and to discuss issues of critical importance to the continent’s present and future.
