I will repeat what it says above: TEDxAccra was awesome! This was my first time attending a tech conference after a year of hiatus, and I loved it. I’ll like to state without an iota of doubt that the entire team did a fantastic job. I’m talking about Marieme Jamme, Worlali Senyo, Edward Amartey-Tagoe, Amma Baffoe and Julani Genth. A big shout out to the team.
The Winners of Apps4africa 2011 were there to share their stories, showcase their apps and what inspired them to what they did and how they’re making a difference with their apps.
What is Apps4africa 2011?
The 2011 Apps4Africa: Climate Challenge built on the success of the 2010 Apps4Africa: Civic Challenge in which civil society challenged program developers to find innovative technological solutions to everyday problems on issues ranging from transparency and governance to health and education. The 2011 competition began, in Western and Central Africa in October, followed by with Eastern and Southern Africa. Winners were announced on the sidelines of the 17th Conference of the Parties (COP17) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Durban, South Africa and in Uganda at the Village in Actions Event.
What TEDxAccra did, was to allow us all as Africans to step back, think about the big picture. why, as a global society, should we continue to invest in overseas development or we should invest in our own, be the judge.
