ASC Symposium 2016 “Africa Rising: Is Africa Really Rising?”

13-05-2016 - 14-05-2016

“The African Students Community Groningen (ASC) is proud to announce that this year’s Africa Rising Symposium 2016 will be held at Groningen University and we would like to extend to you an invitation to this exclusive event!


During this two-day symposium we ask: “Africa Rising; Is Africa Really Rising?”. Our objective during this event is to provide you with a realistic depiction of Africa’s present and future. We approach this concept from the five different angles of Politics & Governance, Health, Education, Business & Economics and Human Rights.

We kick off at 12:00 on Friday at the Marie Lokezaal, Harmony building. On Saturday, an exciting list of activities continue from 10:00 at Het Heerenhuis. We have a wide range of attendees not just from students all over the Netherlands but also high profile delegates and senior officials and also global media outlets.

Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased by following the instructions at the bottom of the programme. They are selling faster than expected so please be sure to get yours as early as possible so that you don’t miss out on your chance to attend and hobnob with key global influencers!
