This century will see many changes in Africa. But more so, urban
Africa will see many more radical changes as Africa wrestles with a
global casino of inventive topics namely; astronomic population
growth, food deficits, housing problems, infrastructure inadequacies,
governance and funding problematicities, leap in technological advance
that will push society forward leaving behind slow and lazy political
inaction.

Africa is already witnessing many political and as well as social
adjustments toward concrete democracy, but broader as the actions
might be, the threat of social explosion is real. Africans are dying
on the Mediterranean Sea crossing over to greener pastures into Europe
that has also turned some section of Libyans opening up old wounds of
slavery.

The digital media world has opened the world to the African, provoking
a greater yearning that is also creating a silent discourse whether to
keep the ordinary African in the same sub-cultural status quo or
moving society forward as the rest of the world as global citizens.

Whereas the global north can build on existing infrastructures, Africa
basically has none in some regions. That offers a blind spot targeting
a ”what” or “where”. Is it the 1700 industrial technology that will
solve the glaring issues or a leap into new digital technologies as
the vanguard?

The debates are intriguing raging from post-capitalistic,
post-colonial, neo-liberalism and appended financial institutions to
the archaic revolutionary rhetoric discourses. The turn tables are for
real.

Now you, your department, college, research centre, faculty have the
opportunity to review last year’s session topics, discussion points,
format, and time at www.uidc-ea.org . You also have the opportunity to
request additions or updates if there is need of such as session
change, or suggestions for additional discussion points.

Whether the above arrays of issues for Africa are; Political, Trade,
Philosophical, Ethical, Structural, Cultural, Socioeconomic or
Technological, the gene is out of the bottle.

If you or your organisation wishes to participate in this year’s two
days conference on; Innovative and Technological, Academic, Political,
Scientific levels and willing to sponsor the conference perusal and
fill in the attached PDF file and send back to me.

Best Wishes

Daniel Bwanika.
