What is RISE Africa?

RISE Africa is ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability Africa's new annual event that aims to inspire and foster new connections that lead to swift and impactful actions for enhanced sustainability and resilience in Africa's urban areas. Exposure to forward-thinking ideas from different disciplines through a range of curated interactions will provide an antidote to outdated "silo" thinking that is well recognised to inhibit innovation. Instead of being another 'talk shop' amongst like-minded individuals, RISE Africa will bring diversity of city role players together in innovative sessions to identify new opportunities for collaborative action.

Who should attend?

RISE Africa aims to break down the barriers between different groups by encouraging interactions between diverse role players who, together, can translate ideas into action on the ground. Unlike many government engagements, participants will not be separated by hierarchy, interest or expertise. Instead, a 'level playing field' will be provided to facilitate engagement and cross-disciplinary learning to spark innovative actions for sustainable cities.

A carefully selected guest list will strike a balance between the following three groups: Thinkers, Doers and Enablers.
