Prominent forums in advancing socio-economic growth of Africa
Our flagship events include the African Leadership Forum (ALF), Green Growth Platform (GGP), and Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF).
ALF daws upon the experiences and insights of former heads of state to guide decision-makers through the trials and tribulations of leading change on the continent. Its dialogues comprehend the leadership issues that are behind the implementation of solutions to Africa’s sustainable development challenges.
GGP aims to increase awareness and understanding of issues related to green growth and its potential for Tanzania’s development. It is a proactive tool for creating cross-sectoral linkages, promoting economic and social wellbeing, and safeguarding the ecosystems and environment that sustain us all.
WLF brings together Tanzanian senior and emerging leaders to exchange ideas and share best practices to promote women’s inclusion in leadership roles. It offers a unique learning space for emerging women leaders as they get to understand how senior women leaders overcome barriers in their organisations and industries.
Deepening knowledge through research
Our research work is grounded on the premise that the creation and provision of knowledge on leadership and sustainable development can play an important role in strengthening the capacity and transformation of leadership across the continent. The research also increases our internal knowledge in developing and delivering specialised training and policy programmes. We take two approaches: Applied research and action research.
Encouraging a broader appreciation and understanding of leadership and sustainable development issues
Our two television programmes on leadership and sustainable development inspire senior and emerging leaders to strive towards making an impact. Climate change, gender equality, regional integration, Africa’s economic transformation, extractive sector development and many other topics are discussed by eminent leaders and renowned experts.
The interviews are broadcast on national television in Tanzania and satelite television across the continent. They are also available on our website and YouTube channel.
