The Nation Media Group has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Ugandan municipality of Entebbe to host the 4th Kusi Ideas Festival in December.
The event running from December 8 to 10 in Entebbe will bring together business leaders, policy makers, innovators, researchers, youth, entrepreneurs, and political leaders to discuss Africa-specific solutions and innovations.
The Kusi Ideas Festival is an annual conference bringing together leaders from around the world and serves as an ideas transaction market for the challenges facing Africa, and the various solutions and innovations the continent is undertaking to secure its future in the 21st century.
It was launched in 2019 in Kigali during NMG’s celebration of its 60th anniversary. The second edition was held in Kisumu in 2020 and the third in Accra, last year.
This year’s festival will focus on climate change and environmental conservation. “This year’s festival is significant because it touches the core of what is actually ailing our continent, that is, the environment,” said Stephen Gitagama, NMG chief executive, at the signing of the MoU.
