There is a call of duty upon every generation, to act or react, to change or challenge, to create or recreate either way that call must be answered.
It determines whether that generation succeeds or fails
and ultimately if it will be remembered or rapidly forgotten. It is upon this premise, that a generation incessantly imagines a world better than the one they met.
It is this constant battle between the known and unknown world that forces a looming restlessness upon a nation’s youth.
In Africa, a generation has witnessed the constant degeneration of its world from cyclical wars to gross inequality, from depraved leadership to inept education but the music must change! Some will argue that it has changed, the Africa rising mantra has dominated recent news on the continent and a hopeful continent has emerged. Regardless of the noise, the call remains an immutable fact and this generation must answer.
To break out of the mold and rid ourselves of the hangover of past and present crises a BOLD manner of thinking is required. At the 2nd annual SHAPE Africa in Abuja, we seek to change the thinking that got us into this quagmire in order to change the results that ensure we don’t just survive but thrive in the world of tomorrow.
Beyond a talk shop, SHAPE Africa 2014 will rally the continent’s brightest minds to proffer innovative and sustainable solutions to core areas such as Education, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Agriculture. Above all, lets take that BOLD step as we unite in May 2014.
“You cannot solve problems with the same level of consciousness that created them”
Bold Solutions- Change the Thinking. Change the Results
