The Knowledge, Spiritual and Struggle Heritage for Re-imagining Innovative Africa
The theme of our 6th International Conference on African Unity for Renaissance is designed to:
1) Debunk the negative narrative that Africans have made no substantial contribution to science, knowledge, history and civilisation
2) Systematically document African knowledge creation, spiritual and struggle heritage and draw relevance for African structural transformation by employing grounded and context-specific approaches and conceptual and theoretical frames
3) Relate how knowledge, spiritual and struggle heritages can change the current fragmented governance, institutions, leadership and systems into a united and robust pan-African direction
4) Look back to glorious achievements of struggles, knowledge and spirituality of Africa in order to move ahead and re-imagine the continent as competent, independent and innovative continent.
5) Appropriate and apply positive data and history to help deal with and respond to various global influences that Africa faces from knowledge transfer instead of knowledge creation; reliance on donor aid; failure at achieving the MDGs and now moving to the SDGs
6) Provide a forum for networking on Africa Liberation Month by opening the opportunity for vast education using Africa Expo Day so that all Africans globally can learn to find shared Pan-African solutions where the 54 states currently can learn to develop a united voice.
