The event which is set to host politicians, entrepreneurs, bloggers, scientists and activists will be held at the “Round Pavilion at the Trade Fair” in Accra on 14 & 15 December 2018 under the theme: NEXT LEVEL.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) who is the main partner of the first re:publica on the African continent will also present inspiring sessions which will be used to discuss how digital technologies with innovative solutions can contribute to mastering global challenges.

One of the keynote speakers for the event, Nanjala Nyabola, an author will be speaking about the limits of technology in her talk “What Technology Can’t Fix”. Mozilla Foundation Executive Director Mark Surman will be in dialogue with other high-profile participants on a panel about internet access.

Andreas Gebhard, co-founder and CEO of re:publica GmbH, says, “The re:publica is an event for digital society. It’s global and thus international! But I say that without wishing to ignore regional differences. How can we work together to shape and design the digital society when regional differences create very different frame-work conditions for it? Whether in Berlin, Los Angeles or Accra, re:publica creates space for dialogue and ex-change between equals. I’m very pleased that we can now create these spaces on three continents.”

Tickets for the re:publica Accra are available for less than 6.50 US-Dollars/33 Ghana Cedi for both days of the conference with our partner eGotickets.
