Accra, Ghana

Join us for the TEDxAccraWomen 2016 conference at the British High Commisioner's Residence in Cantonments, where we'll explore how time and attention shape our lives. It's about time...

TEDxAccraWomen 2016: It's About Time.

On October 28, 10 of Pan African most powerful women will speak at TEDxAccraWomen on the theme 'It's About Time'

Time is personal. We all have the same amount of time - 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough. Even with today's latest inventions, technology, science, we can't make time or stop time - or can we?

Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. We will explore the conventions and challenges of time.

We will ask the hard questions. Because isn't it about time:

  • 1. To find long-term solutions to poverty, energy crisis, violence, gender and economic inequities.
  • 2. To lead for different outcomes?
  • 3. To challenge our "time-saving" technologies?
  • 4. To pay full attention and be fully present for ourselves as well as others?

In our day together in Accra, we will hear talks that offer up ideas, stories, solutions.
