In the ten years since our 2007 conference in Tanzania, the continent has experienced spectacular economic, demographic and creative growth, and made exciting progress toward its rightful place in the world. Yet many African nations are beset by challenges. And the stakes have never been higher. At TEDGlobal 2017, we’ll bring together an incredible group of speakers who can collectively help shape how this plays out. Dreamers and doers. Technologists and entrepreneurs. Business leaders and creatives. The event ten years ago felt like history in the making. The ideas and connections forged then have had untold impact. We invite anyone passionate about the future of Africa, and the future of the world, to come and be part of something special.
