According to the Africa Development Forum (a co-publication of French Agency for Development and the World Bank), it is projected that by 2050, more than half of the world population growth will occur in Sub-Saharan Africa. This translates into Africa becoming a globally significant workforce contributor in the near future with an estimated working population of 600 million people by 2030 as per the World Economic Forum. With this in mind, it is worth noting that there is a pervasive shift in the world of employment as the Fourth Industrial revolution (4IR) unveils new dynamics and fast-paced emergent careers. How will Africa’s education sector meet this new challenge? How will Africa Navigate the uncharted waters of a Post Covid-19 world?
FEWA CONFERENCE 2021 is convened by Effortless Insight Africa, a Nairobi Based Education
Consultancy. It is a unique Conference dubbed Future of Education & Work Africa (FEWA). The inaugural
theme of the conference is ‘RE-IMAGINING EDUCATION AND THE FUTURE WORK IN AFRICA’. FEWA
conference will be focused on the nexus between Education in Africa vis a vis the unprecedented,
technology driven transformation of the world of work and how Africa can bridge the gaps. What does
the Fourth Industrial Revolution Mean for Africa? What are the competencies and skills that Africa
needs to prepare for the evolving labor markets? How can Africa’s education sector adjust to the
same? The two-day conference will take place November 25, 26, 2021, at the Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi Kenya
and will feature a Unique Exhibition on The Future of Work: Education. Innovation. Technology. The
Conference will host over 500 delegates: Educationists, policy experts, government leaders, investors,
HR managers, Directors of institutions and Entrepreneurs from across Africa.
