TIME100 Summit Africa

NOVEMBER 17, 2023


After a year of uncertainty, TIME recognizes 2023 as the moment for institutions and individuals to come together to address the economic, social, environmental and technological challenges facing our world. 
 For the first time ever, TIME will bring its iconic TIME100 franchise to Africa consisting of a daytime summit focused on inspiring youth and an invite-only evening, convening international and regional leaders, influencers and visionaries alongside members of the African TIME100 community to discuss the solutions needed in order to build a better future.  
The Summit will bring together 400 guests with a focus on engaging leaders of tomorrow from international, local and regional advanced education organizations such as Carnegie University, as well as international, local and regional influencers and decision makers from diverse industries.


Throughout the day, attendees will hear first-hand from influential change-makers and leaders as they discuss essential solutions to global challenges—all from a pan-African perspective. Here, the audience will experience TIME journalism, live on stage, with impactful interviews and powerful takeaways.
