Conference

The momentous events on the global stage in the last year make amply clear that the world is not only changing faster than ever before, but that it may be on the cusp of a significant reconfiguration of the geo-political, economic, educational, environmental, cultural and media chips. It is our belief, as many others have recognised, that the current state of affairs represent both a challenge and opportunity for the African continent as it seeks to redefine and reposition itself in constructive and proactive response.

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 fourth year, “Africa Together” has grown into a leading platform that convenes some of Africa’s best minds, policy-makers, businesspeople, 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.
