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:
SAVE THE DATES: MARCH 1 – 4, 2018 | REGISTRATION OPENS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 2017.
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.
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.
