The African Movement-building Summit will be a chance to interact with people in the EA community from across the continent and work on growing the movement in Africa. You can apply here.
Date and Location:
- Date: 1-5 December 2022
- Location: Devon Valley Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa
About this retreat:
The African EA Summit will be a ~30-person retreat primarily for members of the EA community in Africa who are interested in movement-building for EA or related cause areas. We also encourage experienced community members working on projects relevant to the African context to attend.
We will cover room, board, and reasonable travel expenses (incl. visa applications) for all attendees. This is possible thanks to support from CEA's community events program.
Goals & Agenda:
The 3-day retreat will focus on both broad EA movement-building, as well as issues specific to the African context. We hope to:
- Establish better coordination between African EA leaders and movement-builders
- Form strong social connections amongst highly engaged EAs in Africa
- Help key international stakeholders better understand how the African EA community can be supported
The summit will primarily focus on in-depth discussions and strengthening connections. There will also be workshops and talks run by the organisers and other attendees. We encourage suggestions for activities and discussion topics in the comments or in your application.
You can apply by filling out this application form by Sunday 6th November (midnight SAST). We highly recommend that applicants who need visas apply ASAP. We will try to fast-track decisions for these applicants to allow time for visa processing.
I (Jordan Pieters) am the primary organiser for this event. If you have questions about the retreat, you can email me at email@example.com or leave a comment on this post.
