About the event

When the   world descends onto African soil in 2024, what do we want them to experience?   This is not simply an opportunity for astronomy, this is an opportunity to   change the way the world sees Africa. When a continent so often looked down   upon can lead the world in a field as technical as astronomy, then we change   perceptions, we challenge preconceptions, we shake unconscious biases – we   make the world think differently about the potential of all people in the   world to contribute to the human endeavour. Africa also has a rich culture to   share with the world and many stories to tell (both Astronomy and otherwise).   2024 is an opportunity like no other – it is up to us to maximise on that   opportunity for the benefit of Africa and the world. We need to be “audacious”   in our thinking and carry the continent forward to 2024 and beyond.
