Beyond Education 2019 Conference (Accra) - Developing Changemakers

Development experts forecast that Africa’s youth population will outgrow economic opportunities on the continent in a little over a decade; this means that education and employment opportunities will decline even further than they are today unless urgent interventions are made. With more than a quarter of the world’s under-25 population projected to be living in Africa by 2030, our continent is faced with the exciting challenge of how to maximize this youth bulge.
While the rest of the developed world prepares for the 4th Industrial Revolution, African countries are challenged to both pick up the pace of development and prepare for even more rapid transformation. How can we pivot our youth population to address our grand challenges and harness our greatest opportunities? What role can young changemakers play in transforming education, healthcare, climate change, governance, infrastructure, urbanization and job creation?
How can we maximize opportunities inherent in agriculture, natural resource management, wildlife conservation, tourism, arts, design and culture? What role will transformative education and network development opportunities play in enabling this new path for the continent’s youth? How has African Leadership Academy begun to respond to these challenges and opportunities, and how can forward-thinking parents and mentors get involved?
This conference brings together senior executives from African Leadership Academy, education leaders from around the world, and a cohort of young African changemakers under 30 to explore the future of education, leadership and development in Africa. Since 2008, African Leadership Academy has been at the forefront of transforming education by developing a powerful network of changemakers whose collective work will address the continent’s greatest challenges and accelerate our growth trajectory. Through the Beyond Education conference series, we are delighted to share these learnings with parents, students, education leaders and the public.
The conference is primely designed for parents whose children are under the age of 18, high school students, education organizations, youth development organizations, and others who work with youth.
