Africa Gathering London

Africa Gathering is a movement to see African ideas and innovations recognised, used and celebrated. Drawing inspiration from the African Baobab tree, where people traditionally gather to share knowledge, debate issues and learn from each other, African Gathering events – from London to Washington and Nairobi – bring together African change-makers and all those passionate about Africa’s development.
