Upcoming Event

The ALI East Africa Re-Set Summit

 15th – 18th November 2018   Sea Cliff Resort and Spa, Zanzibar

Over the last  two years, the Aspen Global leadership Network has been in a reflective mode. In 2017, the Aspen Action Forum was convened under the theme; The Great Re-Set,  provoked by events  of the time, particularly in the United States with the election of Donald Trump as president.

With everything else that was happening around the world, including rise in emergence of far right groups, some getting into mainstream politics and winning seats in parliament, the migration crisis in the Mediterranean, it seemed that the world’s moral centre was failing.

In march 2018, under the theme “The Great Africa Re-Set”, the wider ALI Network convened in Cape Town to consider what was happening in the world, and how best to position leaders in the network to react in considering ways to manage the turbulent times the world was going through.

The consensus outlined in a strategic vision, which was adopted with much enthusiasm, was that if there ever was a time for courageous leadership, it was now. The outcome from the Great Africa Reset dialogue, was a clear set of tools and ideas agreed on as leadership actions to revitalize the ALI Network for greater impact.

Inspired by the 2018 Action Forum Theme; Fearless Leadership, six ALI East Africa Fellows tapped into the momentum from Cape Town, and convened in Dar –es-Salaam a few weeks later, to agree on strategic actions in a working meeting chaired by Founder & Chairman Ali Mufuruki.  The meeting concluded with enthusiasm to build on the momentum, and reaffirmed resolutions from Cape Town with a commitment to agree on a strategic guide for ALI East Africa over the next ten to fifteen years.
