From 27 to 28 February 2019, the third edition of the Africa Business & Social Responsibility Forum will take place in Mauritius.
The digital revolution requires today to rethink the educational models to meet the many demands inherent to this paradigm shift. It is therefore critical that education in Africa can reinvent itself to train people able to adapt to the rapid mutations experienced by different ecosystems. On the other hand, one of Africa’s major challenges in the 21st century is to create 29 million jobs every year. In order to meet this challenge in all its dimensions (demographic, economic and social), companies must contribute to the creation of conditions guaranteeing direct and indirect quality jobs, which stimulate the economy.
Education ; sustainable and development goal number 4, and employment, objective of sustainable development number 8, are therefore at the heart of this third edition of the AFRICAN BUSINESS & SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Forum, the Forum of the added value. For two days, this meeting will allow companies to present their contribution to Education and employment in a necessary approach to sharing experiences.
