Meet Africa 2.0

NOMINEE –  -YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AWARD

Africa 2.0 China Chapter was founded in October 29, 2015 with a vision

of fostering the next generation of African leaders in China who are

committed to the contribution of the sustainable development of

Africa. The core target of Africa 2.0 is African diaspora in china

from around the globe by empowering them through discussions,

workshops, and innovative activities .We also help develop networks to

create investment opportunities.

So far Africa 2.0 has organized 15 events with an estimated 500

participants attending. These events included (not exhaustive):

ν Roundtable Discussion: FOCAC Johannesburg Summit

ν Nation branding in partnership with Brand South Africa: Nation Branding

ν Business Forum Series: Samuel Maduka Oniyishi Talk

ν Women Mentorship Series: Coming full circle, Lean In China, I AM

(series) – Self Esteem and Identity Mentorship

ν Poetry: China-Africa Poetry Night: African and Chinese Poetry,

Poetry Afternoon

ν Africa Day: Under the theme, “We are Africa, Always learning ever evolving”,

ν China-Africa Agriculture Series: Introduction to Agriculture in

China and Africa

ν CV Workshop

ν Pop Culture Discussions: Hidden Figures Screening

As a result of the above we have been able to achieve the following:

ν After our very first roundtable discussion on FOCAC (Forum on China

Africa Cooperation) in October 2015, subgroups were created to engage

interested persons on offline and online discussions on the following

areas: investment and entrepreneurship, agriculture, energy,

information, communication & technology, industrialization and

infrastructure. These areas of interest were picked from the eight

themes of FOCAC. These groups were established on the popular Chinese

social media channel – WeChat (weixin). Each group had a facilitator

who oversaw the progress and activities of that group.

ν In addition to what’s taking place in the subgroups, the Chapter’s

Board have been very active in putting together a number of events

that unite the entire chapter’s community as a whole. These events

have not only been successful in terms of audience participation but

have also proved the Chapter’s seriousness in reaching our goals as

indicated in our initial vision, mission, and goal. These successes

strategically position us as highly sort after partners and leaders in

helping shape the awareness on opportunities available for the African

diaspora.

In the Future we hope to:

ν Organize events monthly to impact and empower the African community

especially for the purpose of uniting and educating all Africans from

all over the world. Collaborate with organizations with the same cause

as Africa 2.0 to play to our strength for a greater impact on the

African communities in China.

Africa 2.0 China Chapter would like to call out to all Africans from

around the globe living in china to come together for a greater cause

of a better and sustainable Africa; Let’s Raise the bar high and be

our best versions out here.

Africa 2.0 “We are the ones we have been waiting for”
