About the Forum

Modelled on the Aspen Action Forum, the ALI Africa Impact Forum is an event that was initiated by the leadership of the South African, East African, West African and Mozambican divisions of ALI.

This inaugural event aims to provide a space for African Fellows to deeply connect and engage on matters of significance to the whole continent, and in so doing, deepening the pool of influential, effective and ethical leaders across Africa, who assume personal and collective accountability for the “Good Society”

The event will offer over 80 participants a chance to retreat from their busy schedules and refresh their perspectives on their work and lives. These participants will be inspired by the Action Forum’s seminars, workshops, and topical dialogues, to make public “Action Pledges” which detail specific ways they will create positive change in their communities.

The objectives of the event are to:

  • Strengthen the existing regional networks of the Africa Leadership Initiative into an Africa wide group of ethical and public minded leaders committed to the common good.
  • Foreground the African leadership Agenda. In these turbulent global times, how do we lead from the front and ensure we are proactive and not reactive in setting the Africa Agenda.
  • Identify opportunities and commit to individual and where feasible, collective action to improve the common good of Africa.
  • Create a common vision around values based leadership.
  • Be inspired and continue to learn and grow.

ALI Africa Impact Forum
The leadership of the South African; East Africa; West Africa and Mozambican chapters of ALI have committed to hosting a joint Africa wide Fellowship event to be called The Africa Impact Forum. The event will be modelled on the Aspen Action Forum and allow the Africa Fellows to engage on issues of relevance for the continent. A steering committee has been appointed with representatives from the various Fellowships and Aspen. It was decided at the first event steering committee that we should move the date for the Forum from October 2017 to the 1st – 4th March 2018. The inaugural event will be held at the Spier Hotel in Stellenbosch, South Africa. The reason for the move of date is to give us time to plan a world class event and to give all Fellow’s sufficient notice to attend the event. We will engage with you in due course with more details and intend to co create the event as much as possible with Fellows.

The ALI Africa Impact Forum will be held from the 1st to the 4th of March 2018 at the Spier Hotel in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Overall Theme: The Great Africa Re-Set

We are borrowing from Aspen who used the theme THE GREAT RE-SET for the 2017 Aspen Action Forum.

The world seems to be shifting on its very axis? Surprise decisions by voters across the globe, new views on trade and the world order changing. It is clear that global economic, political, spiritual and ecological systems are failing. Positives are; this is one of the most peaceful periods in Africa’s history and nominal democracy is the norm. There have for the first time been some incumbent governments who have been defeated and replaced by democratically elected new governments. Continental collaboration is improving, halting military coups from being successful, increasing integration, improved transport and trade infrastructure. How do we as Africans ensure that we are in control of our Agenda and not on the receiving end of these global shifts? How do we ensure our political leaders are acting in the best interests of our continent? How do we ensure we are pioneering new ways that work for our continent? Poor leadership and lack of government capacity and resultant conflict and corruption are Africa’s continued challenge.  How do we as leaders recalibrate? If ever there was a time for courageous, enlightened leadership – this is it. This is the time for The Great Africa Re-Set.
