More than 100 alumni from over 30 African nations converged at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in Cape Town, South Africa, from 9-11 September for the Leading Change: Australia Awards Alumni in Africa’s Development conference. This was the first event of the kind to be held in the African continent.

 

The two-and-a-half day conference brought together alumni from across Africa to share ideas and best practices on initiatives they are working on that have impacted directly on Africa’s development. The event also enlisted the participation as guest speakers of leading practitioners from both Australia and Africa who contributed their experience and knowledge to the unfolding discussions.
