In a continent “a billion strong” we understand that our collective capacity will have a huge impact on society beyond our various countries borders. Technology fuels this shift but it’s the networked African in the driver seat. How we harness technology and leverage our individual connectivity will determine Africa’s future and recontextualize the continent’s influence globally.
Informed by Social Media Week’s Global theme for 2016, locally the SMW Lagos theme, “The Networked African: Technology’s Impact on Africa (and How We Can Harness it for Good),” will explore how mobile technology, networked connectivity, data and other technologies are radically changing our daily interactions, industries and communities across Africa.
