PEI #ScienceAfrica UnConference


The PEI #ScienceAfrica UnConference is back and this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! Entitled “Generation Science: empowering Africa’s future scientific leaders”, we’ll be bringing together over 200 delegates from business, academia, policy and civil society for an exciting day of expert panel discussions, interactive working groups and participant-led workshops.

In the context of Africa’s well documented ‘youth bulge’, we’ll be challenging delegates to help us explore and find new ways to create high-quality, industry relevant STEM education and training for young Africans aged 13 – 25. Attendees will also explore how to equip the continent’s next generation of business, political and academic leaders with the hard and soft skills required to drive much needed socio-economic transformation and anticipate the needs of industries of the future.

We want to help stop more young Africans slipping into insecure labour and underemployment. We envisage a generation empowered by an understanding and appreciation of science and technology, with African challenges and opportunities addressed by African-led solutions. Africa’s ‘Generation Science’.

The PEI #Science Africa UnConference 2016 will be held at Kensington Town Hall, hosted by our trustees Lord Paul Boateng and H.E. Dr. Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, President of Mauritius, and we will be confirming more high-level speakers in the coming months. As ever though, this event is all about the participants, so get in touch if you’d like to contribute ideas, lead a workshop or become a sponsor.
