The Seedbeds of Transformation conference will provide a collaborative, transdisciplinary space for people with diverse perspectives to explore transformations and the SDGs in Africa. The meeting will draw on a wide range of knowledge and regional contexts to identify appropriate pathways for achieving these goals in Africa. Designed around the concept of an innovation marketplace, this three-day conference will bring together innovators from research, government, industry, NGOs, the media and more.
The event will take place on May 9-11, 2018 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and is co-organized by Future Earth, the South African Government Department of Science and Technology, the National Research Foundation of South Africa, and START.
