RISE Africa 2023 Action Festival – The Cities We Want

RISE Africa brings together thinkers, doers and enablers from across the continent and the world to inspire action for sustainable cities.


This year’s theme is THE CITIES WE WANT and will be exploring how urbanisation and local action could be better considered and included in the African Union Agenda 2063 ambition. As usual, the festival will do this through merging creative expression, thought-leadership and collective voice across its sessions.

Explore the full 3-day programme and make sure to register for each session you’d like to attend. With over 22 sessions to choose from there is something for every thinker, doer and enabler working toward sustainable urban African solutions!
