This event will embrace the direct views of a diverse cross section of Africa’s countries. We believe it will serve as a channel for many of these impactful stories, and we feel we have unique perspectives to add to the growing discussion highlighting an Africa of innovation, of international meaningful conservation of ecosystems. Through our inclusion of experiences, and our direct observations, we hope this event will be a tributary to an even greater river of stories and viewpoints.

We will inevitably generalize about Africa in this event, and we’ll do so with the best intentions toward a critically optimistic perspective. We’ve drawn on our shared years of traveling to the continent and an abundance of first-hand safari experiences and philanthropic projects. This event is our best endeavor to undulate from a wide lens to community level, incorporating personal stories to give a contemporary overview of Sub-Saharan Africa and we hope to take in the spirit of launching meaningful conversations.
