Africa & Change: UK-Africa Communications

This is another of our small, informal, round-the-table meetings. The focus will be on the ways various people (and projects) manage their UK-Africa communications.

We'll be sharing experiences and plans for the future.

We'll be thinking ahead to how we plan to use webinars in the Africa and Change group. These are now firmly on our agenda since I volunteered to learn to facilitate them for our group (see Helping To Run Webinars )

We'll look at other communication channels people are using (in Dadamac we use Skype for our  UK-Nigeria weekly meetings and Etherpads for our monthly open meetings).

    It was a lively meetings which covered a lot of ground. Photos were taken, so there may be some posted here later to give more information. We had plenty of suggestions for webinars, rooted in deep interests, knowledge and experience, and every suggestion could be taken, wider or deeper, or connected with other suggestions. We don't want to exclude others from the discussion, but we did want to come away with something definite. We narrowed it down to our five favourites, with an agreement that Dele and I will take responsibility for arranging the first Webinar, in October, around the topic of Aid for Trade. The second choice was China in Africa. We didn't put our other favourites in any order as new topics may emerge during the webinars, but they are Climate Change - the Way Forward, Women in Africa, and Small Business/Entrepreneurship - relevant link http://www.afford-uk.org/images/Documents/AD3%202014%20Supporting%20Africas%20Youth%20-%20Gender%20Education%20and%20Job%20Creation.pdf

    Hi Jessie . Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate your comments, but some of the issues you raise are outside my control. What is in my control is to provide you with information related to what you shared with us about your personal interests . Regarding cultural events and Africa the Africulture London meetup might be a good starting point http://www.meetup.com/afri-culture-london/. Regarding people in the diaspora interested in setting up businesses good starting points could be the British African Business Alliance http://www.britishafrican.org/ and AFFORD (Africa Foundation For Development) http://www.afford-uk.org/index.php/about-us

    The projects discussed were very interesting.Thank you Pamela for all of the hard work you put into the event.Time flowed very quickly.I hope the attendee details will be corrected,because some people attended without signing up,although their contribution was very valuable.Good statistics and organisation bring institutions forward.

    Greetings to friends old and new who have already replied. If you want to introduce yourself in advance of our meeting you are welcome to so do here. This is true even if you can't make it to the face-to-face meeting, but would have liked to. I'm hoping we will develop ways for this group to "spill over" beyond the face-to-face meetings - hence our interest in webinars. Writing here is one way to do that "spill over". I'll start off by introducing myself through a post I've just written about Dadamac, which I wrote after AFFORD's Annual event AD3 (Africa Diaspora and Development Day) which took the theme "Africa's Population Growth and Youth Unemployment". See After AD3 with AFFORD - http://dadamac.net/blog/2014070...­
