The Africa Together Conference is the premier student-led conference on Africa at the University of Cambridge. For nearly a decade, the conference has continued to assemble Africa’s sharpest and most influential minds, including academics, innovators, policy experts, leaders, diplomats, industry professionals, businesspersons, young professionals, and students, representing several countries across the world, to discuss and design Africa’s future. Former participants have included Heads of State, government ministers, foreign secretaries, CEOs, governors of central banks, and WTO and UN representatives. As the timing of this year’s conference finds the African continent at a crossroads as it recovers from the shocks of the Covid-19 pandemic, this event promises to be the most critical one yet.
