- John Dada will provide a Nigerian perspective based on his work as director of Fantsuam Foundation
- Pamela McLean and John Dada together will provide a UK-Nigeria online collaboration perspective, based on their work together as Dadamac
We’ll be touching on:
- Integrated community development.
- The relevance of the Internet.
- Local-local and local-global collaboration.
- Knowledge sharing, collaborative learning, and the spread of good practice.
- Young people
- Employment and unemployment, learning and livelihoods.
- Challenges and opportunities for innovation.
- Possibilities for collaboration
This is a “walking the talk” session which is local and global in scope. The work of Fantsuam Foundation can be seen as an example of genuine asset-based community development (ABCD). There will be big ideas and vision, but everything we cover will be firmly based on practical experiences in Africa, UK and online. Past and present programmes serve as proof of concept for more ambitious future projects.
