New Ideas for Africa lands in Lagos

The long awaited debut of New Ideas for Africa in Lagos is finally here.

New Ideas for Africa is a monthly event happening in London and Johannesburg since May 2007. At the event, people interested in the positive transformation of the Africa meet to share insights and network around ideas and projects they are working on that benefit people and communities.

In August 2010, New Ideas for Africa arrives in Lagos, Nigeria with the theme “The Leaders Nigeria needs”

Election 2011 is around the corner and the question on everybody’s mind is what we can do to get it right this time. We all hope that this time we can ensure the right leaders are elected into public office across Nigeria.

* But what is the make-up of these right leaders?

* And how do we differentiate them from the many people already throwing their names into the hat to run for public office in 2011?

* How can the public make the right choice on elections day?

* But more importantly, how can we still keep these people in check after they have been elected?

Many projects exist to develop the right leaders for Nigeria and to ensure people’s votes count in 2011. At this month’s New Ideas for Africa, we will have the opportunity to interact with these projects and the people behind them. The session will be very interactive as is our usual practice at these events.

Please extend this invitation to anyone in your network who has an interest in seeing Nigeria led by the right people or just interested in networking with people interested in the social transformation of Nigeria and Africa.
