Global Lab partnered with Impact Hub Accra to organise the Accra Hub of Global People Summit, the first-ever global online summit exploring social innovation, disruptive technology, film and media, and the power of mobilizing networks to address some of the most challenging issues of our time.
It was held on 22nd September and speakers streamed in live from different locations around the world. The theme was CONNECTING THE WORLD FOR SOCIAL IMPACT, and it explored how to make ‘making the world a better place’ a reality. Our event took place at Impact Hub Accra, a local innovation space hosting many start-ups.
The summit discussed the importance of the SDGs, outlined practical ways to make social impact, and highlighted the role of strategic partnerships, financing and engagements to bring about global change.
Aside following the global discourse online, an interactive panel discussion titled ‘Exploring Urban Sustainability’. The panel was moderated by Dr Thomas Tagoe of GhScientific and panelists were Cordie Aziz of Environment360 and Ama Frimpomaa Adjei Ayim of Heels and Boots International.
